UpPrize Awards

Friday, July 31Registration begins at 1:30PM


Culminating a year-long process, the UpPrize Final event will feature the eight finalists as they share their final pitches before the winners are announced! UpPrize is a collaboration between The Forbes Funds and BNY Mellon, and is the region’s first impact investing fund coupled with a research-based social innovation challenge.

The three UpPrize challenges were the result of research with over 150 local nonprofit professionals, and over 100 local companies applied with solutions to address them. After a rigorous selection process and two months of wrap-around support, the final eight entrepreneurs will showcase their unique solutions and learn who will receive $800,000 in awards.
