Min Family Social Entrepreneurship Challenge
Lunch & Learn Information Session

The Min Family Challenge (MFC) was created to empower future generations of engineers to use their acquired knowledge and leverage the power of technology to better the world by serving the least fortunate and their pressing societal needs. Inspired by The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this year’s challenge will support teams developing engineering solutions focused on addressing health risks resulting from poor air and water quality in local communities. The grand prize winner will receive $50K to help launch their company!

Interested participants should attend a special information session on Thursday, November 21 at 11:30 A.M. to learn about the current challenges in air and water quality in local, low-income communities. This is a great opportunity to begin thinking about how you can make a real difference! Individuals and teams can apply without an idea. You must apply by December 1, 2019, but your final team does not need to be formed until late January. The challenge is open to all USC students, however, a current Viterbi student must serve on each team. If you are outside of Viterbi, please come to the session to meet our students!

Please RSVP below so that we have enough food!

NFTE LA Global Entrepreneurship Month

As part of Global Entrepreneurship month, NFTE is looking for volunteer USC students to speak to high school and middle school students about their journey to USC and why they selected USC and their major. Bonus points if you share about the entrepreneurial activities you’ve been involved with too. If you’ve participated in any of the competitions, hacking events, or classes, you have a great story to tell! Come share your journey – the not so great, the life-changing, the setbacks, and the gratifying moments – to young high school entrepreneurs across Los Angeles.

This is a great speaking opportunity as well as a wonderful way to give back to the community. The Viterbi Office of Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship will reimburse you for your Uber or Lyft ride to and from the event, please complete this form.
