MARCH 3-5, 2023
Event is happening in...
Social Innovation Weekend (SIW) is an intense three-day experience in which students, professionals and community members use entrepreneurial skills to tackle a pressing social challenge. This year’s topic of focus is climate change and its effect on our world.
Social Innovation Weekend is only made possible with the help of business professionals, homelessness and affordable housing professionals, and industry experts who serve as mentors/volunteers and judges to help our teams develop entrepreneurial solutions to pressing social challenges.
Social Innovation Weekend is a hackathon style program for Miami University students. Mentors/Volunteers consult with small startup teams to provide their insights and feedback as the teams develop new programs / services / products that address homelessness and affordable housing. Student teams will go all-in for 48 hours straight and pitch their ideas to a judging panel of subject matter experts and startup ecosystem partners at the end of the weekend.
