#makeyourmark is a challenge open to all University of Edinburgh undergraduate students to create a business idea that has a positive social impact by tackling inequality.

Join us for this fun, inspiring, and eye-opening challenge in which you will build knowledge, contacts, and create a business idea that matches profit with purpose. Working with other undergraduate students from across the University, you will develop and pitch business ideas that aim to tackle inequalities and transform local communities, while further developing your team work, communication, research, and presentation skills.

Inspiring business leaders and bright minds from the University will support you throughout. Last year's prizes included mentoring sessions with Alice Thompson, Professional Purpose Coach and Co-Founder of Social Bite, and an ethical gift box from Social Stories Club.

And most importantly, you will #makeyourmark!

I have learnt how to be creative, speak for myself, and to be more open minded.
Great advice from experts and facilitators.
I was reassured as a business student and person that I am on the right path to making a difference.

For Undergraduate Edinburgh Award participants: taking part in this event will count towards your Impact Activity or Leadership Activity hours (about 18 hours if you participate in the whole event).

#makeyourmark is open to University of Edinburgh undergraduates from years 1 to 4.
