The ScaleUp4Sustainability consortium developed the Sustainable Venturing Challenges platform. Its aim is to activate academic staff, companies and students to tap into the potential of challenge-based learning and co-create sustainable business solutions – across sectors, disciplines, cultures and geographic boundaries.

To this end, the platform pinpoints open opportunities for collaboration in sustainable venturing. It also presents relevant information to get started with joining or creating a sustainable venturing challenge. Specifically, university educators, companies and students will find:

  • an emerging database of challenge platforms, matchmakers and alliances that makes it easy to quickly find and connect to either challenge providers or challenge solvers,
  • challenge profiles with information about innovative challenge-based student-business programmes and activities in sustainable venturing,
  • interviews with academic staff, business leaders and university students who share their real-life experiences of co-creating sustainable solutions for real-world problems,
  • a range of resources, including information on benefits of participating in and developing challenges, how to-guides and tools.
