Format and Eligibility

Social Business Competition is structured as a course which provides experiential learning and uses a gamification approach to enhance students’ learning experience. Participating students will learn how to use market mechanisms to address social challenges, leverage on a social collective mindset, collaborate with various stakeholders, and develop their business idea into a real business. This competition offers a win-win platform that allows for bottom-up development.

The amount of work required from participating students is equivalent to what is required from a 3-credit course. Therefore, universities may integrate this competition into their curriculum and may award participating students with course credits according to their institutional policy.

Social Business Creation competition is open to university students at all levels, in all programs, and all disciplines. Non-students can be a part of the entrepreneurial team but cannot enter the competition as participants.
