B.A.F.F.L.E.D. Green: BOOST 2013 and Chicago Green Office Challenge

An organization that I am affiliated with is doing a couple of exciting things, the BOOST Awards and the Green Office Challenge. Below is more information about BOOST, and feel free to check out the Green Office Challenge, which is a friendly competition to green Chicago's offices here: http://chicagogoc.com/ or on Twitter.

The Delta Emerging Leaders are putting out a call for applications for innovative green projects that could use a little Boost.


BOOST (Building Opportunities for Original and Sustainable Thinking) is a community-driven platform for funding emerging innovations in Chicago's green economy. 

BOOST awards modest, unrestricted funding to help launch green enterprises 

We are recruiting applicants who have an emerging venture that could take advantage of community raised funding and a network of engaged supporters. Last year we were able to give out over $3000 to two exciting enterprises

Here's how it works: Local Innovators complete an application describing their initiative and its impact on the green economy. Applications are evaluated by the Delta Emerging Leaders, and the most promisingInnovators get to present at the BOOST Funding Night. Event attendees, or Boosters, vote for their favorite proposals, and Innovators receiving the most votes are awarded a share of the night’s proceeds plus a package of in-kind resources tailored to their project.

Be an Innovator, submit your project! Spread the Word!
If you have a project that might fit the bill, or just want to learn more, please take a look at the attached information and application.

KEY DATES
Innovator Applications Due: Monday March 25, 2012
BOOST Event TBD: Week of April 29th.
