VenCorps, in partnership with MassChallenge, presents the inaugural VenCorps NYC Impact Challenge.

We are looking to find and support business ideas with the greatest potential impact on New York City, with the winners becoming eligible to win their share of $25,000 to further advance their work.

During the Challenge period (September 10 - October 19, 2012), VenCorps and MassChallenge will review and select one or more winners from among the 2012 MassChallenge finalists who have indicated they want to be considered for this VenCorps award.

The four impact criteria by which the business ideas will be evaluated (not necessarily in order of importance or weight) are:

  • Identifying opportunities for new job creation
  • Offering solutions, tools or services that enable government to operate more efficiently and effectively
  • Enhancing the NYC environment to improve the quality of life of its citizens
  • Reinforcing the NYC ecosystem by attracting to the City and supporting other emerging businesses

One or more winners will be announced at the 2012 MassChallenge Awards Ceremony, held in Boston on
October 23, 2012.
