A University of St. Thomas group, Brotherhood, Inc., has been selected as a finalist for the 2012 Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup competition. According to the Mosaic website, the competition is designed to “seek out, celebrate, and promote Minnesota’s most innovative and effective social entrepreneurs and the organizations they lead.” Brotherhood, Inc. is a division of the Community Justice Project at the Interprofessional Center for Counseling & Legal Services.
The competition includes pitching a business plan at the “EPCON: The Engaged Philanthropy Conference” on August 23. Brotherhood, Inc., will be competing against finalists Twin Cities Rise, Tuloko, and Nice Ride for a $20,000 prize. Each group will be judged according to the plan’s social value, innovation, and social return on investment.
The winner of the Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup division will then compete against five other division winners and pitch their business plan to the Minnesota Cup Grand Prize Review Board.
