Last night, the Minnesota Cup Social Division Semi-Finalists were selected for the Mosaic Social Entrepreneur Cup. Social Venture Partners and Mosaic hosted an event at the Carlson School of Management to identify the top entries from this year's Social Division.

Using a process similar to a fast pitch competition, each presenter had three minutes to share their idea with approximately 50 partners. Immediately following each presentation, the audience scored the presenters on a scale of 1-10 in the following categories:


  • Impact/Result

  • Differentiation

  • Viability

  • Wow Factor/Presentation

The Social Division Semi-Finalists are competing for multiple benefits including up to $20,000 in prize money. Next steps in the competition include an event to recognize and celebrate all Minnesota Cup semi-finalists, identify mentors for the ideas advancing in the competition and several sponsor-hosted events.

Congratulations to our eight Social Division Semi-Finalists and good luck in the next round of the competition!
