The Societal Startup Challenge is an opportunity dedicated to innovative and inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. We provide a platform for teams from different Universities, to create community development projects that put people’s own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, we hope that students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success.

 Our work transforms both the lives of people we serve, and in turn, the lives of our students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders. Like in business, we believe that competition encourages creativity and rewards results.
