Social Innovation Solution Competition

 

The Social Innovation Solution Case Competition (SISC) brings together BYU students from all across campus to give them the opportunity to put their skills to the test in solving a real-world social innovation problem.

Who We Are

The Social Innovation Solution Competition (SISC) offers BYU students from all disciplines the opportunity to come together and apply business and technical skills to help solve a live strategic issue where a solution to a current problem has yet to be determined. 

Participation in the competition will provide teams of 3-5 students with the opportunity to: 

  • Compete against, learn from, and network with top students from other schools at BYU
  • Network with and learn from successful social entrepreneurs
  • Focus on a real-time, real-life issue facing a global entrepreneur's organization
  • Win up to $3000 cash, prizes, and TEDxBYU tickets

Student Experience

Jessica Bonnano, an MBA student at Notre Dame, shared her experience with the competition 2013:

"Our team was so impressed with the entire event - from the TEDx conference, to dinner with the Newman's team, to the lovely tour, and more - everything we experienced reflected BYU's dual commitment to both the highest standards of intellectual inquiry as well as the most sincere expression of ethics and brotherly love."
