2017 Social Impact Challenge Kick-off – Ann Arbor

January 24, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Grad and undergrad students from ALL U-M schools and colleges are invited to participate in the 2017 Social Impact Challenge (SIC). This event marks the kickoff of the competition. The case statement will be presented live and teams will hear from Challenge partners, content experts, and stakeholders. Important logistics and planning details will be covered as well.

This year’s Social Impact Challenge is presented in partnership with UM-Flint’s Office of University Outreach, who will be making the presentation at this event.  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?”  Pizza will be provided.

All participating teams are required to have a representative at the Kickoff in Flint or Ann Arbor. In addition to further defining the case in Flint, the session will allow students in need of team members to network and find them.

Teams who participate in SIC ’17 should attend a site visit in Flint on Friday, January 27 from noon to 5 pm.  RSVP if you plan to ride the bus from Ann Arbor.

Team registration is open and the deadline to register is Tues, Feb. 7 at 9 am. Teams from both campuses may team up with each other.  If you don’t have a team yet, you can form teams using our Teamfinder.
