The Impact Challenge

We are continuing the annual Business Today Impact Challenge, a seed-funding competition for students interested in social entrepreneurship. The Challenge is open to social entrepreneurs all over the world, including those accepted to the Conference through our regular application.

The five chosen teams will receive a month of mentorship from top business executives, as well as the chance to compete at the International Conference for $15,000 in seed funding. 

The Impact Challenge submission deadline is August 2nd 11:59 PM EDT.

The Writing Competition

This year, we will be hosting a writing competition as an alternate application to the conference. Students will simply submit an editorial based on the conference theme ("The New Era of Globalization"), and the grand prize winner will receive a spot at this year's International Conference. The top three editorials will be published in Business Today Magazine, which reaches over 200,000 students in North America.

Multiple entries are allowed, and students can apply using both the general application and writing competition, or either.

The Writing Competition submission deadline is July 31st 11:59 PM EDT.
