When & Where
Global Social Venture Competition
The Global Social Venture Competition (GSVC) empowers the next generation of social entrepreneurs by providing them with mentoring, exposure, and over $50,000 in prizes to transform their ideas into ventures that address the world’s most pressing challenges. Teams from across the globe learn how to design scalable models through a process that emphasizes stakeholder discovery, business innovation, and social impact assessment. Founded by MBA students at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business in 1999, the GSVC has evolved into a vast network of entrants, sponsors, judges, and mentors supported by a partnership of premier business schools in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. In 2014, GSVC received 575 entries from 44 countries. GSVC has helped launch successful social ventures such as Kiva, d.light, Revolution Foods, Husk Power, Ethos Water, and World of Good.
