PSICON is Princeton Social Innovation’s annual Social Impact Conference where students, professionals, scholars, alumni, and faculty come together to discuss their experiences with and ideas for social impact. By being exposed to new ideas and examining and challenging the Princeton community, we will create a platform for social impact. With increased dialogue and consciousness on social impact, we can shape both short and long-term initiatives to effectively have a positive effect on the society we live in. This year’s PSICON will be held on November 21st! Check out last year’s website here.
PSICOMP is Princeton University’s first social venture competition hosted by Princeton Social Innovation. Our aim is to provide bright, young social entrepreneurs with resources and connections that will equip them for success. All semi-finalist competitors receive mentorship and networking opportunities, and winners will be awarded prize funding from $30,000 to jumpstart their idea. We’re looking for disruptive, innovative ideas that have sustainable, measurable impact. We believe that anybody is capable of creating social change and encourage all to share their ideas and apply.
