Elevating innovators and activists with Carolina García Jayaram, Executive Director of The Elevate Prize Foundation (#12)

thumbnail post

On today’s episode I’m joined by Carolina García Jayaram, the founding executive director of The Elevate Prize Foundation. The mission of the Elevate Prize is to amplify the impact of innovators, activists and problem-solvers. In its first year the global entrepreneurship competition powered by MIT SOLVE had nearly 1300 applicants from 119 countries. There are 10 winners who receive funding and embark on a 2 year program. In addition, they’re building a powerful platform to mobilize communities, catalyze positive change and awaken the hero in all of us. This conversation was recorded at the end of September, shortly before the 10 winners were selected.*
