Attendees will hear finalist teams–Diversiteam, A.K.A.K.A., Innovation to Impact, and Social Enrichment Wizzes–present their proposed solutions to judges. Experts, speakers, and leaders from community organizations and civic groups, City government, and the investment community will be in attendance and part of the day’s dialogue. Hors d’oeuvres will be served during a networking reception. The event is free and open to the public.
This year’s Social Impact Challenge is presented in partnership with UM-Flint’s Office of University Outreach. At the heart of 2017’s challenge is the question, “How do we advance entrepreneurship efforts in Flint to revive neighborhood centers and city corridors for economic development?”
