A Chance to Win $50,000 and Mentorship….

There are few social entrepreneurs more well-known than TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie. He wants to change that.

Kicking in $50,000 and his mentorship, Mycoskie has teamed up with global-community platform GOOD for the Start Something That Matters Challenge, which is named for the fund that’s fronting the award.

Looking for the next change-maker, the contest is asking social entrepreneurs to submit their world-changing ideas by next Friday (May 17). To be considered, you must be a U.S. resident and focused on providing a solution with global impact. So far, the contest has received submissions from all different industries with some business ideas looking to make an impact with design, food and beverage, technology and fashion.
