Come see what these student innovators have been working on for the past couple of months! USD Toreros will explain their ventures as they compete to advance to the Global Finals. All proposals have been crafted to address one or more of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

All of the proposed ideas have gone through various workshops about design thinking, ideation, business mapping, financial sustainability, and more. These students aim to address at least one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals with these proposals.

$10,000+ of seed funding will be awarded, including a People’s Choice Award, and you'll hear the live announcement of the 2 USD teams advancing to the Global Finals of the Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge.
