SEED20 is the annual program of SVP to identify, highlight, and connect the community to the region’s most promising social entrepreneurs tackling pressing challenges.  These social entrepreneurs can be an innovative young nonprofit or an innovative new program within an established nonprofit.

Over the course of seven weeks, a cross-section of community volunteers provide coaching for twenty selected nonprofits on how to succinctly and powerfully “tell their story”.  The program culminates in SEED20 OnStage, an annual event help in March/April where ten finalists give 3-minute “pitches” to compete for a prize pool and gain community exposure.
