Via this form your organization can sign up to become a Member of the Katerva Winners Circle. Katerva's Winners Circle is an elite group of organizations that have agreed to provide their services, pro-bono and for an agreed time period, to the Katerva Awards program.
You determine the terms, scope and timeframe for your in-kind participation and contribution. We ask that our partners contribute meaningful value to Katerva winners and/or finalists with the goal of accelerating these innovations to market and sustainability. There are up to 100 Finalists from around the world, 10 Category Winners (chosen from the 100 Finalists) and 1 Grand Prize Winner (chosen from the 10 Category Winners).
In previous years, Members of the Winners Circle have either assigned an individual or assembled a small team of seasoned experts to liaise and work with the Katerva Finalist, typically in a series of bi-weekly calls. A member of Katerva will facilitate the first call to introduce the two parties, and help to elicit the Finalist's specific needs - this is the one and only call that Katerva facilitates. The second call focuses on providing the organization with a clear set of objectives and a plan for accomplishing them. All calls thereafter should focus on helping the organization meet those objectives.
If it becomes apparent at some point along the way that the work will require more effort than the pro-bono amount agreed upon in this form, it is the responsibility of the two organizations to work out a solution. Katerva will not interfere in the process.
Members of the Winners Circle are acknowledged on Katerva's website, along with other communications and marketing material.
We are delighted that you are considering to join Katerva's Winners Circle and larger family, welcome.
