Blog : NH Social Venture Innovation Challenge

By Patrick Haigis | Oct 10, 2014 | in

In only its second year, the New Hampshire Social Venture Innovation Challenge is already powerfully demonstrating the keen interest of students and community entrepreneurs in helping address some of society’s most pressing social and environmental challenges, and their creativity in designing novel, sustainable, business-orientated solutions.

The Social Venture Innovation Challenge invites individuals and teams from across the state of New Hampshire to identify pressing social and/or environmental issues at the state, national or global level, and then find an innovative business-oriented approach to solving them. Finalists from around the state will compete on December 15 in Durham, New Hampshire for cash prizes to help them launch their innovative idea. 

The Social Venture Innovation Challenge is designed to be an “innovation accelerator” and to encourage participants to develop original, innovative proposals (versus detailed business plans) in the form of a three-minute video and two-page paper. Proposals may describe the development of a new enterprise or a new entrepreneurial initiative for an established social business.
