Global Links won first prize ($20,000) at the 2011 Pittsburgh Social Venture Partners Fast Pitch Competition for social innovation!
We competed against nine other organizations, each having three minutes to present to more than 325 audience judges on February 17th. In an American Idol-styled audience vote, we won for our plan to increase the number of shipments we can make by improving our efficiency and combining our two sites.
Thank you to Pittsburgh Social Venture Partners and the nine other competitors for their dedication to social innovation, and to our wonderful city. Congratulations to North Hills Community Auto, Union Project, and Nurse Family Partnership for their great performance on Thursday night, and to alternate Grow Pittsburgh who won the Alternates Prize.
