Sample Pic The Mosaic Company is the new sponsor of the Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup, an award presented by Social Venture Partners Minnesota (SVP MN), an organization committed to social entrepreneurs who create better ways to solve complex social problems. The purpose of the Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup is to seek out, celebrate and promote Minnesota’s most innovative and effective social entrepreneurs and the organizations they lead.

"At Mosaic, we approach new challenges with the same creativity and entrepreneurial spirit that successful social entrepreneurs do," said Chris Lambe, Mosaic’s director of social responsibility. "The Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup demonstrates our commitment to social value creation in communities around the world and reflects Mosaic's values of addressing important social issues with enterprises that create positive change in our society."

On June 16, SVP MN held their Engaged Philanthropy Conference (EPCON), and four organizations competed for the 2011 Mosaic Social Entrepreneurs Cup. Winners received financial and technical support to build the capacity of their social ventures.
