About the Social Entrepreneurship Competition in Tourism
By giving social entrepreneurs from around the world access to expertise and international visibility, the competition aims to empower entrepreneurs and communities in travel destinations, accelerate their growth and provide them with access to markets. With the current global challenges of the pandemic, the focus of this year’s competition is supporting social tourism entrepreneurs as they help the sector recover and shape a sustainable future for tourism in holiday destinations. Up to ten finalists will receive a ten-week programme of one-to-one and peer support which will focus on successful pitching, human-centered design, business modelling and impact measurement.
