Most Innovative Social Enterprises and Nonprofits of 2016

Centro is thrilled to have been selected as a finalist for the 2016 Classy Awards - an international event showcasing the most innovative social enterprises and nonprofit organizations of the world, presented by the online fundraising platform Classy, the United Nations Foundation, the Stanford Social Innovation Review and Southwest airlines. 

Every year, the Classy Awards is the culmination of Collaborative, the largest conference and gathering of organizations working to solve the world's most pressing problems. This year, the event is taking place in Boston, MA from June 14 - 16. We are eager to connect with our fellow Classy Awards finalists, chosen from 1,300 programs worldwide. 

The efforts of the 100 finalists span global poverty and hunger, disease, education, climate change, disaster response and preparedness, and health care accessibility, but we all share a passion to tackle these issues through innovation. We raise our glasses in excitement for our Business Planning App which put us in great company!
