2022 Greater Good Challenge

Ten teams comprised of students and alumni from SPS as well as universities around the world will pitch their business ideas aimed at solving some of the greatest challenges our city, country, and world face.

Come witness innovation at its purest form and see who will walk away with seed money to help their businesses grow.

As an attendee, you’ll also have the chance to vote for your favorite team, which will take the $1,000 Audience Pick.

About The Greater Good Challenge

Through the generous support and collaboration of the Beba Foundation, Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies welcomes students and alumni to pitch innovative business solutions addressing current global and societal needs.

Five main categories have been chosen to inspire SPS students to submit their best venture proposals: Sustainability, Technology, Healthcare & Wellness, Supply Chain, Logistics & Coordination, and Social Enterprise.
