At Startup League, we are creating economic opportunity for students by gamifying fundraising — making the experience fun, easy, and accessible to every student through our model game: QUP.
QUP is a mobile game on Startup League that tests curiosity and empathy. On QUP, students compete against other schools for real cash. While brands pay to sponsors challenges, students and schools play QUP for free.
We are connecting students across Canada and the USA to access more fundraising dollars regardless of their socioeconomic status or the resources available to them by their community. By democratizing fundraising dollars we are making it possible for more students to fund their passions and develop empathy and curiosity. And, it’s always free to students and schools to play!
We deserve this award because our business model economically empower students to reach their potential whether it be to support their basketball club, band club, robotics club or other extracurriculars.
