Students are expected to commit three to five hours per week from October 30 - February 27, which will include an orientation webinar, three workshops, and a number of deliverables. For the team that is selected to proceed to Wharton, there will be an additional time commitment required through March/early April until the finals on April 12/13, 2019.

The Invest for Impact Competition gives students exposure to field of impact investing.

The invest for Impact Competition enables students to work with startups and investors and pitch an investment recommendation on a startup to a panel of investors. This competition occurs on a Friday in mid-February (date TBD) at UNC. The week of the competition, students will need to dedicate 15-20 hours to preparation.
