Congratulations Pitch Winners!
Even the obstacles of a pandemic can’t stop the extraordinary innovation of our business sector! For nearly 10 years, the Community Foundation is proud to support ASSETS’ Great Social Enterprise Pitch: a friendly business competition designed to spur ideas, launch dreams, and expand the way Lancaster County does business by harnessing the creativity of social enterprise.
In a year complicated by COVID-19, the 2021 Great Social Enterprise Pitch was held virtually for the first time in its history, but despite these challenges, 10 extraordinary ideas competed for tens of thousands of dollars in prizes and pro-bono services to help make their ideas a reality.
From an environmentally sustainable interior design firm, to artisanal Mozambican crafts, to a progressive LGBTQ+ night club, we continue to be inspired by the ideas and creativity of our fast growing social enterprise sector!

After an initial competition round judged by local community members, five finalists vied for the winning spot, as well an audience favorite.
