Misfits- Social Impact Pitching Competition

Misfits- Social Impact Pitching Competition

                The world has been developing day-by-day. In 20th century, there are lot of inventions, technologies and ideas are evolved. The idea should be social impactful  and useful for the people and society. Through the social impact idea, anyone can become an entrepreneur when they should be confidence on their idea. In this blog, we see a contest called 'Misfits' hosted by Vruksh Ecosystem Foundation encourage the entrepreneurs to enrich their ideas.

                "If we tried to think of a good idea, we wouldn’t have been able to think of a good idea. You just have to find the solution for a problem in your own life."  - Brian Chesky, Co-founder of Airbnb. 

                A community is better off if its employment base is diversified among many small entrepreneurial firms. It promotes abundant retail facilities, a higher level of home-ownership, fewer slums, better, sanitation standards and higher expenditure on education, recreation, and religious activities. In order to enhance our development of society, the entrepreneurship among the people should have to be increased. For that Vruksh Ecosystem Foundation was established in September 2018 by Mr.Abheejit and Mr.Suraj.

                    Vruksh is focused towards building a culture of innovation, problem solving and entrepreneurship in undeserved geographies to solve local problems and build the future. Their aim is to develop an accessible platform to democratize entrepreneurial learning. Vruksh builds inclusive communities to enable behavioural change and social mobility for new age entrepreneurs. The value of Vruksh lies in its ability to identify synergies and facilitate high impact collaboration acting as a catalyst in the network.  Our ultimate goal is to influence local economies which will help us build a Sustainable Future.  

                Misfits is an event conducted by Vruksh Ecosystem Foundation, aims to provide a platform characteristic of Global Coverage, Impact focused and Sustainability. It is a virtual pitch event across 15 regions that creates a platform for social entrepreneurs, innovators and change makers to showcase, connect and expand their horizons. The event offers an opportunity to start-ups, gain seed funding for their ventures, to help create a better social impact. 

"Vruksh Ecosystem Foundation works toward uplifting the entrepreneurship ecosystem, especially in areas where the opportunities are limited. During our journey in the last 2 yrs, Vruksh Ecosystem found that the visibility and opportunities for early stage social entrepreneurs are quite limited. Thus, Misfits as an initiative was born to provide platform for such early stage social entrepreneurs and innovators who work at grass-root level. Vruksh Ecosystem aims to leverage the power of networking and marketing to help deserving startups get support through mentorships, incubation and possible seed investment."
