Applications open for Cambridge Social Innovation Prize 2024





Entries are now open for Cambridge Social Innovation Prize 2024, the prize coordinated by the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation at Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS) and the University of Cambridge’s Trinity Hall.

Together, CJBS and Trinity Hall work to foster an interest in social innovation and entrepreneurship among students, fellows, and alumni, encouraging them to create new businesses and to pursue careers rooted in social and environmental impact.

The awards are made annually to founder-CEOs of scale-up social enterprises to support their growth as leaders. Uniquely, the prize, now in its sixth year, recognises mid-career social innovators. Winners receive a £10,000 cash award for personal and professional development including training, further study and conferences.

Additionally, mentoring from experts at CJBS and support from social innovators at Trinity Hall help them develop the skills, resources, and networks they need to create more impact from their work.

Last year, five social entrepreneurs were recognised for their achievements and ambition in creating social change through business. The five were Dr Liz Dennis, co-founder of The Filo Project; Aoise Keogan-Nooshabadi, co-founder and COO of Supply Change; Zakia Moulaoui, founder and CEO of Invisible Cities; Poku Osei, founder and CEO of Babbasa; and Tim West, founder editor and CEO of Pioneers Post.

“Each year, the Cambridge Social Innovation Prize gives us the opportunity to celebrate visionary social entrepreneurs,” says Nicole Helwig, executive director of the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation. “As the impact of the cost-of-living crisis continues to be felt, the prize-winners challenge the inequities embedded within our communities while delivering positive social change.”

The deadline for applications is 12 April. Application details here.
