As some of you may know, I am passionate about social entreperneurship - basically using traditional entrepreneurship methods and tools to tackle society's biggest problems.
This coming February, I have the opportunity to spend four days at the StartingBloc Institute, building critical relationships and skills to advance the field of social entrepreneurship.
Please help me complete my first mission for the StartingBloc Institute: to raise my tuition of $1,000 by December 20th, 2012. Please help donate (even a few dollars help!) and aid me in continuing to spread the word and perform more innovative work in this space.
To learn more about social entrepreneurship, check out this video from the Skoll Foundation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk5LI_WcosQ

Feel free to message me through this system if you'd like to discuss anything related to social entrepreneurship, my personal mission, etc. Thank you so much for your time and support!
The StartingBloc Fellowship begins with the Institute for Social Innovation.
The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.
The 2013 Los Angeles Institute will take place February 14 -18 at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica.
