The Diehl Family Social Enterprise Competition, funded by the Ohio-based Diehl Family Foundation, has been an exciting opportunity for the DeVoe Moore Center to review over 120 proposals of potential social enterprises from around the world. After awarding $5,000 business plan development grants among 11 finalists, the selection committee chose four projects to receive seed funding of up to $50,000 each:
- Coalfield Development Corporation is launching Reclaim Appalachia in West Virginia to provide vocational training for low-income young adults and sell handmade products from dilapidated buildings
- Kouzin Dlo is establishing a network of entrepreneurs to educate households on water treatment, test water, and sell chlorine in Haiti.
- Clinic Nepal is developing Meghauli Marketplace, giving the local farmers and entrepreneurs the visibility they need among the large village.
- Bright Kids Uganda is implementing a comprehensive ecosystem of social enterprises to create sustainable economic development in their community
