The LaunchPad is accepting applications through November 5 for the Impact Prize, our annual social entrepreneurship competition open to Syracuse University and SUNY ESF students.  The competition on November 12, will feature $20,000 in prizes thanks to generous donors to SU Libraries Carl and Marcy Armani in honor of Dr. Gay Culverhouse, and Dr. Gisela von Dran.  Apply to compete here.

Impact Prize applications can be products, services, or technologies that address problems related to energy, environment, employment, education and training, health and mental health, community and social networks, social inclusion, poverty and literacy, youth empowerment, food, sustainability, access, and other important public policy challenges. 

The goal of the LaunchPad is to help prepare future civic leaders to become trailblazers in an entrepreneurial world.
