The Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship and Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit have joined together to offer an opportunity for Case Western Reserve University students to identify social or environmental issues and form teams to craft an innovative solution to their chosen problem or issue. Participation in the ThinkImpact Program gives students a hands-on opportunity to closely examine a global societal or environmental issue that impacts the lives of many, and think about the ways in which private, public and social sectors can collectively implement a solution that is impactful, sustainable and scalable around the world.
Teams will demonstrate this proposed solution’s impact, feasibility, sustainability, scalability or replicability, as well as its acceptability or desirability to the community or target population. Students are expected to work on this idea throughout the 2021-22 academic year and will acquire necessary tools, receive mentoring and possibly funding, to help grow a social venture. Participants will also be expected to present solutions and work in April 2022 and will receive a stipend of $1,000 for participating in the program.
The deadline for undergraduate applications is April 10 and participants will be determined on a first-come basis.
