The winner of the 2022 Aurora #impactWise Awards is Goofy Meals. Goofy Meals impressed the judges with their affordable, healthy, convenient home-cooked meals made from imperfect and surplus vegetables and fruits. Their winning pitch resulted in first place and a 20.000 DKK (almost € 2.700) financial contribution. Impact Artists and BeeHome took second place.
The #impactWISE Awards ceremony was held online on October 4th, connecting people from all over the world who shared a passion for social entrepreneurship. Many of the participating teams had students from Aurora partner universities.
The #impaktWISE Awards, founded by Copenhagen Business School (CBS) in the autumn of 2020, is a competition aiming to shed light on creative and innovative social business model ideas and is aimed at students and early-stage social entrepreneurs.
The awards are split into two categories: the ideation award and the pitch award. Winning projects of the ideation award receive a certificate and further support from the #impaktWISE team, whereas first-place pitch project awardees take home €2500 (with runners-up receiving €600).
Impact Artists and BeeHome came in second. Impact Artists aim to create awareness and open discussion regarding menstruation through art in India. BeeHome helps parents find care for their children and promotes bonds between daycare providers and families. All three winning projects were created by students enrolled in Aurora member universities.
The next #impaktWISE awards will take place in Autumn 2023. For more information, please follow: https://www.impaktwise.org/
