Other Award Finalists
Award finalist teams for the community track proposed ventures addressing sustainable fisheries and distribution, health access, renewable energy and broadband access. The community track is comprised of teams that are not currently UNH students. There is also a student track, encouraging UNH students to develop business ideas addressing pressing social and environmental issues.
An annual signature program of UNH, the Social Venture Innovation Challenge (SVIC) engages aspiring and practicing student and community social entrepreneurs in designing novel, sustainable, business-orientated solutions to some of society’s most pressing social and environmental challenges. The SVIC is an idea-stage competition with the goal of inspiring innovative, solution-orientated thinking and providing a forum to shine a light on these ideas.
The program is a collaborative, interdisciplinary event, organized at UNH by the Center for Social Innovation and Enterprise, and cohosted by the Carsey School of Public Policy, NH EPSCoR, the Peter T. Paul College of Business & Economics, UNH Sustainability Institute, UNH Innovation, and Net Impact UNH.
