BENEFITING: New Venture Fund

EVENT: Summit At Sea

EVENT DATE: Apr 08, 2011

THE STORY:

I am the founder and CEO of Bamyan Media, a social enterprise that produces original Reality TV competitions in developing countries. The popular series rewards the courage and initiative of social entrepreneurs, while teaching the skills needed to lead a successful business. I produced the pilot program, “Dream & Achieve,” in Afghanistan, where it aired on the largest national TV channel and became the #1 surprise hit. An estimated 7 million Afghan viewers watched contestants pitch and launch their ventures, and voted for their favorites with SMS messaging. Thousands of participants were linked to practical, local resources for help with finance, training, and business development. Bamyan Media is currently launching the model in Colombia and percolating pilot 2.0 in East Africa. I currently hold a BA from Hampshire College where I designed my own major in storytelling and sustainable development. I have been featured in the New York Times, the International Herald Tribune, Forbes Magazine, on BBC radio, and have been awarded prestigious fellowships in social entrepreneurship from Echoing Green and Rainor Arnhold’s.

I've been invited to Summit at Sea event taking place on April 8 - April 11. Summit at Sea awards females for their outstanding ideas, work and passion. Please donate any amount to help me attend the event. You can select the Donate button above or select Join The Team and help me fundraise so I can attend.

Thank you,
Anna
