PRISM Awards 2018


The Colorado Institute for Social Impact (CI4SI) is thrilled to announce the 2nd Annual PRISM Awards, co-presented by Vectra Bank! A first of its kind event, the PRISM Awards honors exemplary social entrepreneurs and businesses in our community that simultaneously grow our economy while creating impact.

This year, we are excited to take the 2018 PRISM Awards to Manitou Springs’ beautiful Briarhurst Manor. March 2nd, join us for food, drinks, and networking over one fabulous night celebrating local social impact! Admission includes 1 beer or wine ticket, as well as our inaugural social impact magazine produced in collaboration with Colorado Collective.

At the PRISM Awards, we recognize 3 different categories: Social Impact Startup of the Year, Social Entrepreneur of the Year, and Social Impact Business of the Year. We ask our community to nominate businesses and entrepreneurs that inspire them! Nominations open January 15th and will close January 29th.
