New Profit has had a long, collaborative relationship with Deloitte and we'll have an exciting announcement to make on that front next week. In the meantime, we wanted to highlight a great new competition Deloitte is running to "recognize an education organization that is leveraging technology innovatively to drive specific education outcomes for K-12 students, such as reading / math proficiency, on-time graduation rates, and college readiness."
The competition - called the Deloitte RightStep Innovation Prize is "open to U.S.-based nonprofits and for-profit organizations with a social mission, includes $100,000 cash and the opportunity to receive $100,000 in pro bono services for the winner, as well as access to the Deloitte network, enabling the organization to improve its geographical reach with the goal of impacting and helping even more students."
This is an amazing opportunity for social entrepreneurs to get the kind of catalytic and transformative support that is usually reserved for Fortune 500 companies. Please help us share the news of this great prize (#RightStepInnovation)!
