The story of how this came to be...
Vibewire recently ran a crowdfunding campaign which aimed to provide support for three young social entrepreneurs who are launching projects that drive action on the fields of open learning, youth mental health and sustainable design. Our supporters helped get this campaign off the ground - since then we have received many amazing applications from budding social entrepreneurs. Narrowing the finalists down to a number of NINE, Vibewire's crowdfunding campaign supporters will be voting for the final THREE winners who will received the Vibewire scholarship.
The three winners will be announced one week after the Vibewire Pitch Up.
