BOOST 2018
BOOST is a live, crowd-funded pitch fest in support of energy, ecosystem, and waste innovations in Chicago. It is an initiative of the Delta Emerging Leaders, an associate board of Delta Institute that empowers young leaders to advance innovation and sustainability in the Midwest.

Social entrepreneurs with unique and innovative projects pitch their concepts to a live audience at BOOST. Audience members vote with their ticket contributions to determine the winners, who each receive a BOOST grant. Grant funds are raised by the Delta Emerging Leaders through sponsorship and ticket sales. Cumulatively, BOOST has provided $45,000 to 12 innovative projects in Chicago over the past six years.

This community-driven approach to financing social ventures overcomes a funding barrier for local entrepreneurs and engages hundreds of people to directly invest in the future of Chicago.
