From Competition to the Real World.
Projects that have been proposed at the Sustainable Investing Challenge have grown beyond the competition to make positive impacts on communities worldwide. These ventures started as two page student proposals and have evolved into legitimate actors in the impact space.
We encourage and support competitors in their pursuit of sustainable finance careers post-competition, and the examples below are a testament to the innovation and perseverance of students who have not only chosen to dedicate their professional expertise to sustainable finance, but are doing so through the entrepreneurial pursuit of ideas nurtured in the competition.
