Resolution Project's Social Venture Challenge

Registration is now open for the Resolution Project's Social Venture Challenge


 

One Young World is proud to announce that, for the first time, The Resolution Project is bringing its innovative Resolution Social Venture Challenge (SVC) to the 2015 One Young World Summit!

Founded in 2007, The Resolution Project, Inc. is a U.S. 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to fostering youth leadership development around the world through collaborative social entrepreneurship.

Your Involvement

  • Resolution partners with existing youth summits like One Young World– including the Youth Assembly at the United Nations, the Igniting Innovation Summit and the Harvard World Model United Nations conference.
  • Resolution invites undergraduate students attending these conferences to propose social ventures through the SVC.  This is a multi-stage competition, combining web-based submissions, live rounds of presentations and due diligence.
  • Resolution then awards Resolution Fellowships to the most compelling leaders with the most promising proposals from the SVC.

The Resolution Social Venture Challenge allows undergraduate students to build teams and submit their plans for actual social ventures that will make a positive impact today.  Resolution will provide a grant of up to US $3,000 and dynamic, hands-on mentorship for the winning Resolution Fellows and their ventures.  There are currently over 150 Resolution Fellows working on 6 continents in diverse, high-impact fields such as human rights, energy, environment, education, technology, and community development.

All undergraduate students who register for the 2015 One Young World Summit will receive details on how to register.  If you do not receive an email, please contact svc@resolutionproject.org.

This opportunity is only open to 2015 One Young World delegates who are currently enrolled on an undergraduate programme.
