Calls for Proposals: Blueprint Mississippi Social Business Challenge Competition
Mississippi Public Universities are solving Mississippi’s most pressing problems and advancing the state together. Through research, teaching and service, universities help tackle health issues, improve education and assist those who are economically disadvantaged, unemployed or underemployed.
There is much work to be done. Knowing that our students possess the creativity and ingenuity necessary to find unique solutions to these problems, Mississippi Public Universities have developed the Blueprint Mississippi Social Business Challenge. IHL is inviting teams of students to develop a creative solution and business plan to address one of Mississippi’s most pressing problems: obesity and related health issues. Open to any public university students, the challenge requires students to work in teams of 3-6 with at least one faculty adviser. Last year was the first year of the competition and the USM Team won 3rd place.
