Who will be the one?

OneUp is the public awareness and community engagement part of United Way’s GroundFloor program, responsible for the annual OneUp the Pitch and OneUp the Vote events. These events encourage public involvement and passion for innovative social programs that make a difference in our community.

OneUp the Pitch is a live event in which five social entrepreneurs compete for $100,000, and the title of Social Entrepreneur of the Year, by pitching their ideas to a panel of celebrity judges in front a live audience. OneUp the Vote is the preceding digital campaign that allows social media users to vote for their favorite and help them earn cash prizes.
