Arizona Social Impact Business Challenge

Date: June 1, 2020

Time: 12:00 am to 11:59 pm

No experience needed! Registrations accepted up until submissions are due on July 10, 2020!

The Zuckerberg Institute, Microsoft Alumni Network, Phoenix Ivy Council, and 33 North Partners have been joined together by the creators of the Great AZ Code Challenge, to bring you the inaugural Arizona Social Impact Business Plan Challenge for high school students--our state’s very first social impact business competition. 

High school students are invited to work in teams of up to four people as they identify and develop novel approaches to help disabled or special needs persons enhance the quality of their lives. Throughout the Challenge, they will be provided with experienced and successful mentors to assist them in the process of building a truly viable business plan, and work alongside public and private industry experts, mentors, and social entrepreneurial thought leaders that will set them up for success in school, business, civic engagement and in their lives.

In addition to free access to experienced mentors, there will be a series of educational workshops led by some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the United States, world class speakers (including Randi Zuckerberg herself), opportunities to work alongside and network with peers, and (of course) the chance to win incredible prizes.

Our mission is to inspire and empower the next generation of student changemakers seeking to build a better future. Students will be equipped with the entrepreneurial skills and the tools needed to prepare business plans that provide market-driven solutions to important social problems.
