You're invited to an afternoon of inspiring pitches showcasing the best of Georgia Tech's passion to solve the world's most pressing social problems (and raffle prizes and delicious cookies!). Come to support our students who Dare to Care!
During the Finals Poster Showcase, the judges will circulate among finalists to determine the prize winners. Each team will then present their one-minute pitch, during which the audience can vote for their favorite team to win the Peoples’ Choice Award.
I2S is a competition for students who are working on early-stage projects to solve social/environmental problems. I2S is primarily a competition of ideas that are ready to move to 'action' and need mentoring, expert feedback, and funds to get started.
Ideas for the competition might focus on sustainable community development, access to quality education, employment opportunities for people with disabilities, clean water solutions, affordable health and wellness solutions for underserved populations, alternate sources of energy, just to name a few.
