What kind of world do we want to live in in 2030? Many will seek to answer this question at Mashable’s sixth annual Social Good Summit sponsored by MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth. Join the Center to examine the impact of technology and new media on social good initiatives around the world.
- On Sept. 27-28 the MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth will be giving all attendees and organizations the opportunity to give an elevator pitch in a real elevator. They’ll be able to tell The Center what they’re doing in the name of social good, specifically to help end poverty.
While in the elevator, attendees will video record their idea in 60 seconds giving them a chance to build new connections that help the center’s goal of ending poverty. Each pitch will lead to a donation of up to $50,000 to DataKind to help end poverty.
The MasterCard® Priceless® Elevator Pitch, has been used by MasterCard as a competitive, entrepreneurial small business initiative. But at the Social Good Summit, The MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth is repurposing the Elevator Pitch to connect people.
