The vibe in the room is electric! Eight social entrepreneurs came to Downtown Credo to pitch their businesses. Each one resonates with the Credo of meaning, impact, and community. The room is full long before the pitches start. The first pitch is from Care Spotter followed by two urban farming concepts, Edible Orlando Junior Academy and Growing Orlando. The next concepts, Market Colors and One Purse, focused on helping women escape from human trafficking. Next, Rebuild Globally shared the 760% growth they’ve had in the first four years of operation. They focus on helping women produce a sustainable income to remove her family from poverty. The last two business pitches focused on our school-aged children in our local community. These businesses are The Human Experience and SourceCode B46.

The awards will be announced at the third annual CREDO Awards on November 6, 2014. If you’d like to attend, tickets are available here.
