The Acara Challenge, sponsored by the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment' s Acara program, invites international student teams to learn about and develop social businesses. Each winning team will receive $5,000 plus tuition to attend the Acara Summer Institute in Bangalore, India, this summer where they will move their proposed businesses from plan to action.

Teams were charged with developing business ideas to tackle global challenges of food and water security with the help of professors, industry mentors and international university partners.
