Eidos Challenge: Social Procurement

On August 30st, 2017, Eidos Institute will open applications for the Eidos Social Procurement Challenge. Self-nominated teams will have until Friday the 3rd of November 2017 to submit an idea. The winner will receive a $25,000 contribution towards turning their idea into reality.

The Challenge, in partnership with the English Family Foundation, is driven by a carefully developed question – How do we build the capacity to scale on the supply side of ‘Good Procurement’ in a flexible and collaborative way? The competition will crowdsource the best ideas from across Australia to solve a challenge that can boost the economy and the impact of our community organisations.

“Eidos turns conversations into action through the ideas of the crowd. Our partners nominate an issue they are passionate to explore and together we define the problem, stimulate engagement and actively seek solutions. This flips the traditional way of solving problems which are typically procurement led, costly and timely” – Bruce Muirhead, CEO, Eidos Institute.
