A life time opportunity

Daffodil International University (DIU) is going to host the 5th edition of Social Business Creation competition organized by HEC Montréal in Canada. DIU will also organize the regional semifinal of this competition. This competition is an innovative pedagogical platform on which students learn to create social businesses. Beside the rich learning experience, students will get chances to win several prizes of CAD 1,25,500 in total.

Social Business Competition is structured as a course which provides experiential learning and uses a gamification approach to enhance students’ learning experience. Participating students will learn how to use market mechanisms to address social challenges, leverage on a social collective mindset, collaborate with various stakeholders, and develop their business idea into a real business. This competition offers a win-win platform that allows for bottom-up development. We are confident that your university and students will find the experience with our Social Business Creation competition gratifying.

The amount of work required from students is equivalent to what is required from a 3-credit course. Therefore, your university may integrate this competition into your curriculum and may award participating students with course credits according to your university’s policy.

Social Business Creation competition is open to university students at all levels, in all programs, and all disciplines. Non-students can be a part of the entrepreneurial team but cannot enter the competition as participants.
