Social entrepreneurship is an approach by individuals, groups, start-up companies, or entrepreneurs, developing, funding, and implementing solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues.
Planet Pitch is a social entrepreneurship competition where students develop innovative products or services to address challenges facing the world.
Our high school entrepreneurship programs and pitch competitions are free and available to high school students everywhere regardless of geography, income or school resources.

High school student entrepreneurs build skills in creativity, innovation, communications, marketing, finance, the law and develop an entrepreneurial mindset.
Students develop their own products and services to address project challenges that we provide to address one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
All Planet Pitch students enhance the college and job applications. Planet Pitch finalists win college scholarships or money to fund their products and services!

High school entrepreneurship students learn about social entrepreneurship through free video-based instruction provided by Planet Pitch.
Videos feature serial entrepreneurs, angel investors, intellectual property attorneys, social entrepreneurship professors and marketers.
This instruction is paid for by our sponsors and free to schools, teachers and their students.
Students will submit an application with an overview of their Planet Pitch product or service business model. Students can enter ideas in the Idea Category or existing products or services (they have developed) in the Growth Category.
Students will be notified whether they reached the Planet Pitch finals.
Planet Pitch will take place at a regional level and global level. We will also record the event.
There will be eight finalist teams (up to 3 students per team) in each category (Idea and Growth).
Each team will deliver an 6-minute pitch with 5 minutes for judges' questions.
