The GSVC application will guide your team through the lean start-up process developed at UC Berkeley. GSVC alums consistently highlight the value of the rigorous GSVC process as a “forcing mechanism” for articulating their vision, impact and business model.
GSVC connects emerging social entrepreneurs with the world’s leading experts in venture capital, impact investing, and social entrepreneurship. Beyond visibility, GSVC empowers social ventures to test their hypotheses and gather valuable feedback.
Kickstart your social venture through multiple opportunities to win prize money, ranging from $2,500 to $40,000 in potential funding for your start-up. GSVC serves as a catalyst for future competitions, accelerators and other opportunities for funding.
