Description

You are warmly invited to attend our Social Impact Showcase

Social Velocity, MAP's first pre-accelerator program for social impact, concludes with a Showcase on Monday, 27th February at 6pm.

Join us for an evening of inspiration and promise as our very first batch of social impact founders prepare for acceleration. Our founders will pitch to a panel of judges and stand the chance to win trips to the UK and Italy to advance their social impact startup dreams - made possible by Trinity College and the Melbourne Accelerator Program.

A social impact startup builds solutions to help alleviate the big social issues of our time. Our mission driven founders have built products and services that address: climate change challenges & symptoms; civic engagement & democratic decision-making; ageing & isolation; economic inclusion of indigenous communities; waste management & recycling; and mental health & well-being.

Meet and mingle with the teams - a night not to be missed!


Event Format
