Are you an NYU undergraduate student who wants to change the world?

Do you have a social venture idea that will create positive change in the world?

Selected teams are awarded $1,000 seed grants, and one team is awarded a grand prize of up to $10,000, a host of NYU Social Entrepreneurship Program-sponsored resources, and the opportunity to work with 180 Degrees Consulting – NYU for a semester of consulting services.
