Through Verb U, you can still access your DSIC projects, edit them and submit them to our other competitions or create new projects. If you had a DSIC username and password, you can still use them on our platform.

What if every student who believed they could change the world actually had the tools to do it?
Introduction
Formerly The Dell Social Innovation Challenge (DSIC), Verb U is affiliated with Verb Inc. and identifies and supports promising young social entrepreneurs who dedicate themselves to solving the world’s most pressing problems with their innovative ideas. The program provides university students interested in social entrepreneurship with world-class teaching and training, as well as with start-up capital and access to a network of mentors and advisors.

Since 2007, more than 25,000 students from 100 countries have proposed more than 7,000 social enterprises for tackling social and environmental problems through the Dell Social Innovation Challenge, which is now Verb U. We give participants the mentoring, tools and cash prizes needed to take their projects to the next level. We’ve awarded more than $795,000 to teams from around the world who’ve had the courage, vision and passion to turn their “What Ifs” into action. 

Verb U reserves the right to remove any self-promoting content posted by members that does not directly relate to social innovation, social enterprise, or the former Dell Social Innovation Challenge itself.
