Several Michigan organizations are combining forces to host a new, statewide social entrepreneurship competition.
The Pure Michigan Social Entrepreneurship Challenge was announced Thursday by Michigan Corps, Great Lakes Entrepreneurs' Quest and the Michigan Economic Development Corp.
Beginning Monday, prospective entrepreneurs are invited to complete an application at GLEQ.org to begin their participation in the challenge.
Applicants then will have access to coaches and special events to support the preparation of their submission before the May 20 deadline.
A special social entrepreneurship showcase and pitch event will take place on June 18 in Lansing.
Participants will be vying for more than $50,000 in potential cash prizes.
