Social Business Competition is structured as a course which provides experiential learning and uses a gamification approach to enhance students’ learning experience. Participants 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.
To be eligible, each team must include at least one university student (at any level, program, and discipline). All members of participating teams must pay their registration fee to access SBC training and make presentations.
