SHARK TANK EVENT

1 FEB 2018 3:15pm–5:30pm

The Largest And Most Diverse Corporate Giving Collaboration
The Country Has Ever Seen

Our world is facing unprecedented challenges, with many large corporates setting targets to help solve the most pressing problems of our time.  However setting these targets is the easy part, delivering on them is the challenge.

This is where Corporate Social Impact Challenge 2018 comes in.  Forget optimising, this collaboration is about revolutionising holistic corporate giving.

The best ideas from the Think Tank (the day prior) were presented to a friendly shark tank panel of high profile experts spanning corporate, not for profit and philanthropy.  Leadership from participating organisations were also in attendance, and along with the sharks, voted on the best ideas to determine the winning concept for the day.
