  • 10 minutes set up and handout annual reports to judges
  • 13 minutes oral presentation
  • 7 minutes for questions and answers
  • 5 minutes for exiting the room while the judges score the team

SAGEGLOBAL would especially like to thank the following:

Host: SAGE Ukraine


  • Mayor of Odessa, Mr. Gennady Truhanov
  • Odessa City Council
  • SAGE Europe Coordinator, Ms. Olga Azarova
In getting ready for the competition, teenage SAGE teams are encouraged to utilize all available resources in their community.
Two extremely valuable resources are:
  • Successful business, civic and education leaders to serve on their Business Advisory Board (BAB), and
  • College/university students who can serve as business consultants and mentors.

Social enterprise business (SEB):

Social enterprises directly address social needs through their products or services or through the numbers of disadvantaged people they employ; they can be legally structured either as for-profit businesses or not-for-profit businesses, but in either case must have an earned income strategy in place
