Global Partner Network

The Global Social Venture Competition is one of the oldest social venture competitions with the largest global reach.  Founded at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business in 1999, the GSVC has evolved into a global network of premier business schools, universities, and programs in the US, Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America.  Each partner school and program is supported by vast regional and local networks that include other universities and organizations, student organizers, judges, mentors, and investors in the social impact, innovation, and entrepreneurship space.

The GSVC partner network consists of three levels of partnership – Regional Partner, Round One Partner and Outreach Partner.

Regional Partners

Regional Partners host a regional round of the GSVC and move forward top teams to the Global Finals.

Round One Partners

Round One Partners host a first round of judging and move top teams forward to Regional Finals.

Outreach Partners

Outreach Partners perform outreach and marketing to encourage participation at their respective universities and programs.
