I work at MEDA, an international development organization focused on entrepreneurship within agri-food systems. Seeing as your expertise is within the Liu Institute for Global Issues, I wanted to reach out to see if you had anyone in mind to apply to our Pitch Competition: Reimagining Food Systems!
With over $15,000 available in prize money, as well as opportunities for promotion and mentorship, we’re on the lookout for star applicants with a socially impactful idea centered around food and agri-food systems. Five finalists, selected by MEDA’s market systems experts, will have the opportunity for an expense-paid trip to MEDA’s annual convention in Atlanta, November 4-7, where they will pitch to attendees and a panel of judges.
I also wanted to reach out to see if you had anyone in mind for Convention 2021. This is a great opportunity for any students and educational staff/faculty to get connected with international development professionals, meet like-minded individuals, and build upon their professional experience.
We would greatly appreciate if you could forward this opportunity to your networks through social media, newsletters, or by word-of-mouth ???? Always happy to speak more about these opportunities if you’re interested. Thank you!
