PRISM Awards 2018


The Colorado Institute for Social Impact (CI4SI) was 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 social businesses in our community that simultaneously grow our economy while creating impact.

In 2018, we were excited to take the 2018 PRISM Awards to Manitou Springs’ beautiful Briarhurst Manor. On March 2nd, we were joined by over 200 attendees for food, drinks, and networking over one fabulous night celebrating local social impact! We were also thrilled to launch our inaugural social impact magazine produced in collaboration with Colorado Collective.

At the PRISM Awards, we recognized three different categories: Social Impact Startup of the Year, Social Entrepreneur of the Year, and Social Impact Business of the Year. We asked our community to nominate businesses and entrepreneurs that inspire them! See the WINNERS of the PRISM Awards 2018 below.
