The UpPrize: BNY Mellon Social Innovation Challenge, which was established in 2014, is helping Southwestern Pennsylvania nonprofits, for-profit and social entrepreneurs create positive social returns with purpose-driven innovation. Over $1.5 million has been invested over the past two competitive cycles in solutions, and has had an amazing track record of success in picking and scaling these solutions. Out of ten finalists so far, one has been acquired by Amazon and five are expanded to more national play and are taking in revenue. This year there will be two cycles—one for great ideas and another for great solutions.
