Global Social Innnovation Challenge 
Location: USD

Global Social Innovation Challenge is a social venture pitch competition that recognizes, resources, and rewards student-led social ventures focused on sustainable change. 

The GSIC is an opportunity for students to turn their ideas for sustainable social or environmental impact into reality via resources, mentorship, and a chance to secure seed funding.

Participants are asked to select a social or environmental issue of their choice, and work through the following stages:

  1. Study the existing landscape of the problem to discover gaps in existing solutions and identify levers of change.
  2. Develop a business plan around an innovative solution that addresses these gaps.
  3. Pitch the proposed solution for a chance to obtain seed funding and other resources at the global final.
