Join our community

Do you want to make an impact? GreenHouse is a community for innovators who want to create social or environmental change.  

You can join this community in two main ways:

Innovators in residence           workplace innovation

Join Innovators in Residence, a community where student innovators receive mentorship, training and funding to launch their own ventures. Join Workplace Innovation, a community where changemakers work with a host organization to solve identified problems. 

Other ways to get involved: 

  • Enroll in SVENT, where you can get course credit for exploring your passion for social change and launching a social venture. 
  • Attend a Discovery Lab , where innovators engage with organizations to find meaningful problems to work on.
