Today Keiretsu Forum (the largest global angel network)  and The Gratitude Network (a nonprofit focused on social impact entrepreneurs) announced a collaboration to encourage global angel investors to be even more involved in “giving back.” A special set of Keiretsu Forum-Gratitude Awards were established.  A selection committee will vet and choose the “best and brightest” opportunities during April 2017. The Gratitude Network will announce up to 5 awards chosen by the Keiretsu network and Gratitude team later in 2017. The awards focus on innovative non-profit and for-profit teams in a scale/growth stage who are impacting the areas of childhood development and education – anywhere in the world.

Keiretsu Forum nominated award winners will receive a year of intense coaching and access to more than 40 mentors and a wide network of talent and potential partners from the Gratitude Network. For detailed information read more here.  

Selected award winners will be showcased at Keiretsu Forum meetings and member gatherings around the world during 2017 and 2018. Applications for the Gratitude Awards are being accepted through April 1, 2017. Contact for questions about the program.
