Interview by Jonathan Kersting

One Mic Stand


UpPrize is helping southwestern Pennsylvania nonprofit, for-profit and social entrepreneurs create positive social returns with purpose-driven innovation.

We talk to Joyce Howard of Innovation Works about Up Prize and its upcoming submission deadline of July 15. Get key details so you can make your submission on-time!

The UpPrize Social Innovation Challenge, administered by Innovation Works and fully funded by the BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania, will return for a fifth year to bridge the gap between the nonprofit and entrepreneurial communities and increase the number of impactful technology-based solutions targeted to critical social challenges.

For 2022, the UpPrize Social Innovation Challenge will focus on technologies supporting racial and economic justice while also strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion among entrepreneurs and businesses in southwestern Pennsylvania’s tech ecosystem.
