"One of the main goals of the Social Venture Coaching Competition is to find the best ideas and brightest entrepreneurs from across the university. StartupTree has allowed us to attract the attention of students and alumni who are engaging on the platform for other reasons. As a result, our applicant pool has broadened to include more departments, schools and sectors."

Social Venture Coaching Competition
The University of Southern California hosts events throughout the year with 50+ RSVPs and competitions with 70+ participants.
“StartupTree is an excellent system. I built a similar platform for a non-profit grant program a few years ago and I’m a fan of how StartupTree centralizes all of the USC programming to allow for a cross-pollination of ideas and expertise.”
