RISE is U21's showcase of student-led projects in the areas of sustainable development, social enterprise and non-profit innovation. The videos you see below are examples of some of the best projects within the U21 network, which are ready to scale up, reach more people, and make more positive change for society.
It can be difficult to take a social enterprise or innovation idea beyond small-scale, local implementation, into something bigger. Creating global impact is even more of a challenge! RISE helps students realise this goal for their projects by giving them access to a global audience of potential supporters. U21 will ensure that each project will receive expert support as well as international exposure, working to attract pledges of support for the different projects from our global partners in industry and academia.
Each project will also be entered into the RISE Awards for Impact, Innovation, and Potential, offering three winning teams a bespoke package of acceleration and professional development opportunities with a minimum value of $2000 per team.
