Sitawi e UBS promovem noite especial para o empreendedorismo de impacto

A Sitawi Finanças do Bem realiza, em parceria com o UBS, seu segundo jantar e leilão de vinhos para alavancar recursos e impulsionar as Finanças Sociais e Negócios de Impacto no Brasil. O evento acontecerá no dia 25 de setembro, no Bistrot Parigi, localizado no Shopping Cidade Jardim, em São Paulo.

A Sitawi e o UBS acreditam em investimentos que multiplicam impacto através de projetos e negócios sociais por todo o país. A união das duas organizações busca criar uma plataforma de comunicação para fomentar o tema e dar luz ao impacto positivo gerado por organizações em diferentes campos de atuação: saúde, educação, direitos humanos, acessibilidade, inclusão, entre outros. Todo o recurso proveniente do Leilão será destinado a projetos de incentivo ao impacto socioambiental positivo no Brasil, apoiados pela Sitawi.

Mais de 100 convidados acompanharão de perto a cerimônia de premiação e participarão do Leilão de Vinhos em benefício das iniciativas da Sitawi, que apresentará vinhos excepcionais doados por colecionadores, como Château Mouton Rothschild 1966 Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Latour 1977 Premier Grand Cru Classé e Quinta do Sibio – José Duarte d’Oliveira 1893.

About the Visionaris Award:

As a demonstration of its commitment to society, UBS created the Visionaris – UBS Social Entrepreneur Award to support the work of outstanding social entrepreneurs. For this purpose, in 2004 UBS AG joined Ashoka, an international organization founded in 1980 with the purpose of collaborating for the professionalization of social entrepreneurs around the world. For UBS, a social entrepreneur is an extraordinary person who possesses the vision, creativity and determination of a business entrepreneur, but uses these qualities to design systemic solutions to tackle complex social problems.

The theme of Visionaris 2018 is “Improving Scalability”: achieving social impact is not just about starting a model that works. Once a social enterprise has demonstrated its success, scaling up the successful operating model becomes imperative. This year, the objective is to identify social enterprises that have generated a proven social impact in an innovative way and to design a viable, effective and sustainable model to scale their intervention model. The objective is that the economic prize received through Visionaris will be used by the winner to implement this model. Learn more at http://ubs-visionaris.com.br/
