We are launching a search for Social Innovators who will benefit the most from access to the unique network and expertise of UBS, the world's leading wealth manager.
We invite you to apply to become the UBS Social Innovator 2016 in one of three regions,Switzerland (our home market), Europe Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific.
10-12 shortlisted social enterprises from each region will be invited to Regional Bootcamps and Summits during October and early November. The Bootcamps, designed with input from Ashoka, the leading Social Entrepreneurs network, will provide an opportunity for all the regional shortlisted candidates to convene, network and collaborate. They will be attended by UBS employees, UBS partners and experts from Ashoka who will all act as coaches and mentors to the shortlisted candidates.
At each Bootcamp, four Regional Finalists will be selected and invited to pitch their social enterprise for cash grants at the Regional Summits. There, the jury will select the UBS Social Innovator and three runners-up in each region.
