Calling all young Jewish and Israeli social entrepreneurs: here is your chance to help change the world while competing for $1 million in total prizes to realize your dreams. Forbes magazine, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Case Foundation and other partners today announced the Under 30 Change-the-World Competition, a global social-impact challenge for social entrepreneurs under 30 to advance solutions to global issues.
The Under 30 Change-the-World Competition’s $1 million prize pool is the largest-ever of its kind. Five semi-finalists will win $100, 000 cash grants, and the overall winner will receive $500, 000 in cash and in-kind grants. The competition will take place during Forbes’ second Under 30 Summit, from Oct 4-7 in Philadelphia, where 2, 000 young entrepreneurs and game changers are expected to gather.

“We have brought together an amazing coalition of good for a historic competition that we hope will inspire and accelerate a generation of social entrepreneurs, ” said Randall Lane, Editor of Forbes magazine, who oversees the Forbes Under 30 Summit and The Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy.
Submissions for the Under 30 Change-the-World Competition will be accepted from July 22 until August 26. The application can be found here.

This year’s Forbes Under 30 Summit is built on the success of a $400, 000 entrepreneurs contest at last year’s Under 30 Summit. The winner, socially conscious online marketplace Enrou, quintupled its traffic since winning the contest and credits its exposure at last year’s Summit to its rapid growth.
