The time has come to vote for your favorite New U 2011 fellow(s); all of the entrepreneurs of color you’ll see pitching in the videos below are hoping to win a $10,000 seed grant to continue to fund their company.
Only you can decide which three of the fourteen New U fellows will win. Please review ALL fourteen video pitches and vote for the four candidates you feel most deserve to win a Ford Foundation-sponsored seed grant.
You may vote as many times as you like, and please tell your friends both in and outside of the UNITY Journalists of Color community to vote as well.
Voting is open to the public, and there are no restrictions. The window to vote is now and continues through midnight on January 3, 2012.
All votes will be tallied in January 2012, and grants awarded to the winning fellows in February, 2012.
Help support your peers, the next generation of successful media entrepreneurs of color: Vote New U 2011!
