Impactathon® at UCLA
- April 25, 2019
About This Event
Calling all LA social entrepreneurs and individuals driven to create social impact! Win up to $10,000 for your social enterprise solution or up to $1,000 for mapping out a solvable problem.
If you have ever been called to create positive impact, whether locally for Los Angeles or globally for the world, this event was designed for you!
In partnership with UCLA Anderson School of Management and The SAM Initiative, Impactathon® is back, as part of Impact Week. At Impactathon, you will learn from esteemed UCLA Anderson faculty about methodologies and frameworks for understanding how social impact works as a system. You will hear from local social entrepreneurs and subject matter experts about their candid experience in deeply understanding a societal issue and building a social impact initiative. You will participate in a design-thinking approach to understanding a problem.
Whether you are an experienced social entrepreneur or new to the space, you will have the opportunity to work in teams and further your enterprise or understanding of a solvable problem. Teams will have the chance to pitch to judges and potentially win funding to further their work.
Be part of this unique opportunity to create change in Los Angeles and beyond!
