The annual "Risk Takers" Competition is a special event that gives creative and talented young people an opportunity to showcase ideas, concepts and businesses and compete to receive seed funds to support their project.

Each year, entrepreneurs, inventors, artists and other creatives submit applications to participate in our risk-taker’s competition. The participants will present ideas that they believe are socially disruptive yet feasible to implement and could dramatically change the social, cultural or corporate landscape of Atlanta. The finalists will present their projects at our annual fundraising event each year where the winner for the award will be announced on that night.

The winning and runner up teams will receive start up or “scale up” capital (amount to be determined). All three finalists will receive technical assistance to support their endeavors.

Application fee: $50

Important Dates:

  • February - April  - Application submittal period
  • April/May - Interviews & finalists determined
