Win a scholarship for your social venture

Invent Your World is an international campaign sponsored by the Lemelson Foundation and Ashoka GenV to support young inventors in creating social change. Youth wishing to use new or adapted technology to address global challenges are encouraged to launch a "social venture" and implement their invention. Ashoka GenV will provide mentorship and seed funding to 50 new ventures. In addition, Lemelson and Ashoka will choose the best teams and offer additional support, including a visit to MIT to take part in a global roundtable discussion and $20,000 in scholarships.

The Post is so inspiring!

Social Entrepreneurship is indeed the way forward!

For a thorough presentation of Social Entrepreneurship and the impact it will have on the future of humanity,

I strongly recommend a recent book, Social Entrepreneurship, The Secret to Starting a Business Worth Living For.

A good review of the book can be found Here.
