Join the Innovation Hub Haverhill and Essex County Community Foundation to Elevate Digital Equity in our communities

Enter the 2023 Digital Equity Challenge pitch contest!

We are seeking projects, solutions, business models and new ventures (for profit or non-profit) that address one or more of the following key areas:

  • Addressing Racial Inequities in Digital Access
  • Increasing Access to Devices
  • Promoting and Growing Digital Literacy

Through the 2023 Digital Equity Challenge – our second year hosting this event – we want to ignite your entrepreneurial spirit to cultivate creative solutions that level the playing field and create new opportunities for digital literacy, access and equity. We encourage student teams, individuals, non-profits and entrepreneurs to enter the challenge. Top scoring applicants will be invited to pitch at our live event to compete for $10,000 in cash prizes to launch their idea!
