PLEASE JOIN US FOR reSET'S 6TH IMPACT AWARDS NIGHT!
reSET's Annual Impact Challenge is open to early-stage entrepreneurs and start-ups from all industries, which operate or have operations in New England, and whose business or business concept is designed to create a positive environmental and/or social impact.
Impact Awards Night (IAN) is the event at which reSET’s competition culminates. After a three-level application process, honorees chosen by an expert jury receive public recognition, and share unrestricted seed capital and expert professional services. This year’s prize purse is valued at $100,000.
The theme of reSET’s 2016 IAN is “A Leading Role.” Approximately 300 people playing leading roles in the region’s business landscape will be in attendance at the Academy- and Emmy Awards-like celebration. From reSET members and co-workers, to social entrepreneurs, to business mentors and partners, and other industry leaders.
Last year, 100+ businesses applied to the Impact Challenge, which was more than double the number that appliaed the prior year and a 700% increase from when The Challenge and Awards started in 2011!
