Four bold social enterprises and innovative nonprofits pitched before representatives of high-profile banks, national foundations, family offices, corporations, and independent investors—as well as an audience of influential individuals and peers—during the 2019 Winter Innovation Summit.

Edovo, a rehabilitative and educational technology program for inmates at correctional facilities, was selected as the winner. Not only did their pitch team receive critical feedback and acclaim from the judges, Edovo will receive five hours of legal consultation with competition sponsor Dorsey & Whitney LLP, five hours of communications consultation with Sorenson Impact, and will be featured in an upcoming video for the Forbes x Sorenson Impact series, a $25,000 prize.
