Dear Be! Fund Friends, Family & Supporters,
We’re excited to share with you that Be! Fund has been selected as one of three finalists in the Incubator Category of the Villgro Awards 2013 for the Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem!
In order to win this award, we need your vote between March 19 – April 14. To vote, click here. To vote you will need to quickly create a profile using just your name and email address. After you receive your confirmation email, click the link and you will be able to vote for as many of the Villgro Award candidates as you want (unfortunately you can only vote for Be! once!).
The public voting will play a major role in deciding the winner of the Villgro Awards announced at the Sankalp Unconvention on April 17th in Mumbai. The winner of the Incubator category will receive a Rs. 50,000 prize—enough to purchase a big machine for a new Be! entrepreneur or potentially finance their entire investment! But apart from the money, what really matters is that this award will help us tell the story of our growing number of hero entrepreneurs. From farmer transportation, to urban biogas to rural medical services, our hero entrepreneurs are solving all kinds of problems for low-income communities. These are the stories we want to tell—of young people, successful entrepreneurs, inspiring role models.
So go ahead, vote now & share the link with all your friends too!
Thanks a lot!
