About the Program

Please plan to join Enterprise, our sponsors KeyBank, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Ohio Savings Bank, a division of New York Community Bank, and the staff of the Levin College Forum Program at the 3rd annual Leadership in Community Innovation Award Forum on Wednesday, November 12 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at the Roberta Steinbacher Atrium, Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affair as we aim to educate, inspire and further engage the community in the work of three award finalists; work that embodies the vision and values of developing an equitable and sustainable society and economy. The finalists will each present their ideas and the $25,000 winner will be determined in real time by a panel of expert judges.

Also at this event, Enterprise will present the 2nd Annual $10,000 Nurture an Idea Award to two innovative nonprofits, working to improve low-income Cleveland communities, and a $10,000 cash award to the winner of our fundraising CrowdRise Challenge. The Nurture an Idea Award provides funding and expertise for an innovative community development concept that would otherwise not get off the ground due to a lack of resources. The CrowdRise Challenge is an online fundraising contest in which the nonprofit that raises the most money during the Challenge will receive the award.

The Levin College Forum Program is where the community gathers to discuss challenges, create opportunities, and celebrate accomplishments. Seen as the catalyst for thoughtful public debate, innovative thinking, new ideas, and timely action addressing critical issues that impact Northeast Ohio, the Forum provides the ideal venue for Enterprise to host this event.


Forum programs are free and open to the public.
