Guided through city meetups and web conferences, facilitated by UoC mentors, this peer learning pedagogy pushes enterprising teams into taking action.

The Societal Startup Challenge is an opportunity dedicated to innovative and inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action.

The challenge is designed to foster community involvement and biz-cum-tech innovation by bringing engineers, management graduates, scientists, and business-minded students together in order to shape the world of tomorrow. 

Top 100 teams get access to community benefits such as societal start-up tools, distinguished mentors, technology support, holding peer elevator pitch reviews, workshops, and a spotlight at annual COTF Summit.
