Nestlé announces Creating Shared Value finalists

From over 1,000 entries, six finalists have been chosen for Nestlé’s 2018 Creating Shared Value Prize.

The company said that their outstanding social innovations each address a growing need for good nutrition, safe water or enhanced rural development, supporting Nestlé’s purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future.

The finalists will attend a two-day boot camp with Nestlé partner Ashoka, a network of systems-changing social entrepreneurs, before pitching their ideas in front of a live audience at the 2018 Creating Shared Value Forum in Brazil.

The winner will be announced on 16 March and receive a prize totallingCHF 500,000. This, said Nestlé, includes financial support and mentoring to help scale up the initiative and make a lasting impact on people’s lives.
