Global Sport Social Impact Challenge

Think you can change the world through sport? We can help make your idea a reality.

In the fall of 2018, the Global Sport Institute is launching the Global Sport Social Impact Challenge, a grant funding program that supports new social impact ventures to positively shape the world through sport.  Any new social impact venture could be considered - community programs, educational opportunities, training and mentorship programs, adapting sport facilities to better serve people who don’t have one nearby, starting a league or bringing a new sport to an area that doesn’t have access to it - you name it.

Ventures supported within the challenge will go through a structured process to help refine their concept, create an operating model, and pitch to potential supporters. Venture Devils Pitch Playoffs and Demo Days will be leveraged to help determine the winning venture and award a grant of up to $10,000. Winners will also receive ongoing mentorship from professionals in the social impact entrepreneurship community.
