The Global SIC is a social venture pitch competition that recognizes, resources, and rewards student-led social ventures focused on sustainable change.
Participants are asked to develop a nuanced understanding of a social or environmental issue of their choice (by analyzing the problem and the solution landscapes) and identify gaps in the existing approaches. Then, they are asked to identify a potential solution that can address the gap/s, has measurable positive impact, and can be financially sustainable & scalable. Finally, students create a compelling value proposition, build a viable business plan, and pitch the venture to a panel of judges for seed funding and other resources!
The Albers School of Business and Economics has entered Seattle Univeristy in the 2018 Global Social Innovation Challenge (GSIC). All Seattle Univeristy Students are encouraged to participate.
