Global Social Venture Competition

Description Global Social Venture Competition supports and promotes the creation and growth of successful social ventures around the world. GSVC defines a social venture as an enterprise that has both financial and social goals integral to its purpose. Each year the GSVC annual business plan competition rewards a number of social ventures that are most likely to succeed in accomplishing their financial and social missions. The competition envisions a world in which every business values, generates, and accounts for social impact. The Global Social Venture Competition began in 1999 as a student-led initiative at the Haas School of Business. In 2001 the Columbia Business School and The Goldman Sachs Foundation partnered with the competition to broaden the competition's reach. The competition has since been joined by the London Business School (2003), the Indian School of Business (2006), Omidyar Network (2006, as financial sponsor), and the Yale School of Management (2007) as partners.
