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 will meet one-on-one with students 1x-2x 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.
