Offer: Project INSPIRE: UN Women/MasterCard Grant Opportunity

You have 5 minutes.
Tell us your life-changing idea and you could win a $25,000 grant to bring your idea to life.

Have an inspirational idea that can empower women, improve their livelihood, change the world?

Here is your chance to make it happen!

PROJECT INSPIRE: 5 Minutes to Change the World is a joint initiative by UN Women Singapore and MasterCard to help you create a better world of opportunities for women and girls in Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa.

Sure, there are million dollar ideas out there. That’s not what we need from you.

We want you to get creative and make meaningful impact with the limited resources you have. Keep it real. And inspire others to do the same.

It’s about accessible, doable, measureable, sustainable.

Send us a video pitch with your idea to help empower disadvantaged women or girls, through education, skills training, financial inclusion, social entrepreneurship. You could win a US$25,000 grant to go out there and bring your vision to life.

Special recognition will be given to the Best Financial Literacy/ Livelihood proposal which will win a start-up grant of US$10,000.

What’s more, finalists will get the chance to come to Singapore to present their inspiring idea to an expert judging panel. You will also attend a workshop on sustainable social entrepreneurship and presentation skills training.

If you are 18-35 years old, passionate about making a positive and lasting impact on the lives of underprivileged women and girls, we want to hear from you!

Submissions are open from 8 March - 30 June 2011.

Hi Katina, I'm not involved

Hi Katina,
I'm not involved in organizing this, so I don't know when they will offer it again. You could check their website or see if UN Women has an email list you can join to hear about such opportunities. I hope that helps!
