SEED20 is Social Venture Partners’ annual competition for nonprofit entrepreneurs. Through the SEED20 program, we identify, spotlight, and support twenty of the region's most innovative ideas for tackling pressing social challenges. 

Held at the Bechtler Museum and Knight Theater on March 27, 2017 SEED20 OnStage is more than a competition. It’s also a big celebration—a chance to network and support social entrepreneurs and the energy and ideas they bring to our region.

All twenty nonprofit entrepreneurs will be showcased at the event. Vying for prizes, up to ten finalists will give fast-paced three-minute pitches of their ideas to a panel of judges and to the live audience. You, as part of the audience, will have a chance to vote for your favorite!
