Judges at Europe Liberty Forum 2023 chose Levan Pavlenishivili of Atlas Network partner Georgian Economic Literacy Initiative as the winner of the Europe Think Tank Shark Tank competition and its US$10,000 prize.

Levan Pavlenishvili showed our judges a compelling plan to educate teachers on how to effectively teach economics and increase students’ economic literacy. By training teachers on free-market ideas and helping them weave economic concepts into their lesson plans, Levan’s project will have an impact for years to come.

Atlas Network’s Coach, Compete, Celebrate model is on full display at each of our four Regional Liberty Forums, through the Think Tank Shark Tank grant competition. In this event, three Atlas Network grant recipients take the stage to pitch a panel of judges—and the audience—on why their project should receive additional funding support. Think Tank Shark Tank and more Atlas Network competitions will be coming to your part of the world. Visit to receive updates about Atlas Network events in your region.
