Cabarrus County Nonprofit Pitches Ideas at SEED20 OnStage

On March 27, ten of Charlotte’s most innovative and dynamic nonprofit entrepreneurs took the stage at Knight Theater where they each had three minutes to share their nonprofit’s ideas, struggles and goals to a live audience and four judges.  The event, called SEED20 OnStage, was hosted by Social Venture Partners and drew an audience of over 900 people and many more viewers who watched online.  Each of the nonprofit entrepreneurs spent two months preparing for their pitches and at the end of the show, four of them walked away with prizes totaling $46,000.
