What You Need to Do (3 Steps)

1.Identify a business venture, form a team of at least two more teens at your school, and find an adult ally/sponsor

  • The business must be either be a
    • Socially responsible business (SRB) or a
    • Social enterprise business (SEB)

2. Operate the business during the year

    • Marketplace viability
    • Social impact

3. Travel to the SAGE national tournament to present your business to a panel of leaders (by invitation only: your invitation will be extended only if you meet certain reporting benchmarks during the year)

other things to consider
Other Things to Consider
  • Each country will send its two winning teams to the World Cup; however, if a country conducts only one competition (SEB or SRB), only the winning team will qualify for the World Cup
  • A number of special awards (to be determined) will be given at the World Cup in both competitions (e.g., “best social enterprise businesses addressing the Millennium Development Goals”)
how to fund a sage team
How To Fund A SAGE Team
  • Recruit a Business Advisory Board (BAB) that includes successful entrepreneurs and business leaders
  • Approach civic organizations and leading businesses to seek their support; some businesses, like Target, Staples, & Best Buy, provide small grants to local schools for leadership/community activities like SAGE).
  • As your SAGE business grows, more companies will support you by providing BAB members and financial resources
other information
Other Information
  • A high school or organization can have many SAGE teams, as long as each team:
    • Consists of at least three active teens
    • Selects one SEB or one SRB to focus its effort (but not both)
