What Is Impact On Air?
Behind every great idea is a great team.
We are on a mission to discover the world's most innovative social enterprises and the people behind them -- then connect those people to each other and potential supporters around the globe.
How It Works
Successful applicants will have the chance to give a five-minute presentation in front of viewers around the world. Each session will feature the top three most innovative enterprises in each category, along with experts from that field. Viewers will be invited to participate in the Q&A. Select Impact Hubs will have the opportunity to host viewing parties. All sessions will be simultaneously recorded and archived on YouTube.
