Biennial UNC Social Innovation Challenge

Every two years, UNC's Social Innovation Initiative holds a pan-university challenge open to all students, faculty, and staff interested in launching social ventures. Ten ventures are selected for a two-year residency at CUBE, UNC’s social innovation incubator, and can receive up to $5,000 in seed funding. There are eight different tracks: environment, health, education, socio-economic development, technology, sports, arts, and food.
