The Challenge: Each year, a pressing social challenge is selected by President Clinton and becomes the theme for the respective cycle. The “President’s UN Challenge” provides a specific and measurable objective that each participating team is intended to solve through the creation of a sustainable enterprise. In March, selected participants are invited to pitch their start-ups that specifically address the challenges identified in that year’s challenge.  A clearly defined framework is also provided to ensure your idea contains the necessary qualities and mandates to be an innovation breakthrough.
