The Vision


Through the Social Venture Academy, students from across campus collaborate together with one vision: to help change our world for the better. The Social Venture Academy works with student entrepreneurs to help build socially-minded businesses, connecting them with the resources and knowledge they need to turn their ideas into reality.

Student teams are mentored through three phases: idea validation, product development, and launch. We hold pitching events for each phase—the Best Idea, Best Product, and Best Venture competitions—where ventures are awarded funding. Teams are not competing against each other to receive this financing; all ventures that demonstrate high potential can receive funding in each phase. 

Join the Social Venture Academy and use your experience and skills for a good cause!
