Changemaker Institute Info Session

10.18.2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Transform your idea for social change into a sustainable venture and a potential career!

The Changemaker Institute (CI) is a social venture accelerator for undergraduate and graduate students hosted by Tulane’s Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. This eight-week workshop series equips students to develop sustainable and scalable solutions for social and environmental problems. CI pairs participants with mentors in their field, creates a strong cohort of like-minded students, and increases access to Taylor resources, such as funding opportunities (up to $20,000) and staff support. Past well-known CI ventures include Trash to Treasure, Fund 17, FailUp, and Top Box Foods.

Info Sessions

Attend an info session to learn more about CI, the application, and interview process. Time will be allotted to meet other students and possibly build teams over free food.

  • October 18th at 6:30pm
  • October 19th at 6:30pm

All Sessions take place at Taylor in 200 Flower Hall

 

Learn more about CI and download the application at http://changemakerinstitute.com! The application is due on November 7th at midnight.
