gAlpha Social Justice


gALPHA Social Justice is a free 4-week program for UW-Madison students committed to making a positive impact in the world.

The team at nationally-ranked startup accelerator gener8tor and the Social Justice Hub works one-on-one with students to flesh out ideas and to develop innovative solutions to social justice problems.

Beginning at kickoff and continuing each week of the program, gener8tor staff meets one-on-one with students once or twice per week to whiteboard social justice problems and potential solutions, conduct market research, set goals around execution, teach how to validate a design with beneficiaries/customers, and teach how to communicate about social justice solutions both verbally and in writing. 

$400 prize money is granted to the winning project at the end of the semester.
