We’re inviting all nonprofits and social entrepreneurs to tell us how they’ve used Lean principles to fulfill their mission. Organizations chosen for the event will be invited to do a 5-minute pitch in front of 300 guests and 20 expert judges, including leading philanthropists, investors, and foundations, for a chance to win Lean Entrepreneur and Intrepreneur awards.
