Finalist organizations are required to attend their regional EFNH AMP Grant Event, a five-hour session that includes a Pitch Camp coaching session, one-on-one pitch mentoring with an entrepreneur, and a final pitch to EFNH members. EFNH members will participate in a live electronic vote to choose the winner of one $25,000 grant at each regional event.

All finalists will also have the opportunity to share how EFNH members can support your efforts through consultation or mentoring. In the past, several organizations have connected with entrepreneurs in the software, web-based, food production, energy, advanced materials and venture capital sectors.
