Founded by MBA students at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, the Global Social Venture Competition (GSVC) has evolved into a global network supported by an international community of volunteer judges, mentors, and student organizers. This partnership between premier business schools in the US, Europe, Asia, and Africa aims to foster a new generation of business leaders that values the social and profit potentials of business. The GSVC achieves this goal by catalyzing and promoting for-profit and not-for-profit ventures that create and measure both social and financial returns.
Georgia Tech is a Full Regional Partner for the Global Social Venture Competition. Supported by the Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship, the Georgia Tech graduate chapter of Net Impact will be coordinating the first two rounds of competition for teams from the eastern half of the United States. Advancing teams will compete in the Global Finals, which will be held in Milan, Italy.
The Global Social Venture Competition provides aspiring entrepreneurs with mentoring, exposure, and $80,000 in prizes to transform their ideas into businesses that will have positive, real-world impact. Since its inception in 1999, the GSVC has awarded more than a quarter of a million dollars to emerging social ventures and has introduced early-stage social venture entrepreneurs to the investment community. Nearly 25% of past GSVC entrants are now operating companies.
GSVC at Georgia Tech is brought to you by ILE and NetImpact.
