Innovation Showcase

The Social Innovation Challenge (SIC) powered by the Center for Peace and Commerce at the University of San Diego prepares students to be conscious entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and changemakers in whatever their next endeavor is. A single university initiative in 2011, the challenge has grown to become a bi-national initiative in 2017 with participation from 10 universities from both the U.S. and Mexico. From 2017-2018 onwards, the challenge is now a global initiative that welcomes participation from universities and colleges around the world that are keen on recognizing, resourcing, and rewarding student social innovators to drive positive change in our world!

Below are a few examples of student-led social ventures that emerged from the Social Innovation Challenge during 2011-2017. Click the images below to see more information about each of these social innovations and what each venture is up to now!
