Global Social Venture Competition

Announcing the 2017 Competition!

The Global Social Venture Competition leads entrant teams through an experiential learning process to develop innovative, scalable solutions to the world’s greatest challenges. Through our global network of 14 partner schools and competitions, we give teams the connections, support, and exposure needed to advance their social ventures.

Each of the competition’s three rounds also asks teams to build on past learnings and focus on distinct emphasis areas. A team’s ability to demonstrate progress in these areas will be an important determinant of its venture’s overall score, which in every round is evaluated on business potential, social impact potential, and likelihood of success.

Application Deadline: December 5, 2016

Global Finals at UC Berkeley: April 5-7, 2017
