Social Innovation Challenge

OptimizeWayne is a new student organization that provides mentors, networking, resources, and a platform for student to develop their own projects, innovations, and organizations for social change. Our organization does this by enrolling interested student into our Social Innovation Challenge.

OptimizeWayne is hosting its 2017 Social Innovation Challenge during this upcoming winter semester, an opportunity to take ideas for social impact whether in art, design, business, technology, volunteering, medicine, or more and turn them into fully functional initiatives. Monthly workshops will feature mentors and guest speakers from the community involved in social innovation providing guidance to help teams establish networks in all the right places. At the end of the year, the student teams with the most impactful and viable projects receive funding of up to $5,000 to continue their projects.

Overall, our mission is to create sustainable social innovative projects that will benefit our local community and create a positive student environment at Wayne State University. 

We hope to raise $500 in order to award one of our teams at the end of the Social Innovation Challenge to aid in their sustainability in our local community. 

A written smile, 

OptimizeWayne Team
