THE STORY:

Hello All,

I was selected for the highly competitive StartingBloc Fellowship and I need your support! I'm raising $1000 to attend StartingBloc's 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 a survey of social innovation, an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.

The 2012 New York Institute will take place over August 2 - 6 at the Design for Social Innovation Space at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

 

About StartingBloc:

StartingBloc is a people incubator focused on developing and supporting a new wave of social entrepreneurs/innovators. Fellows are young leaders who share a common set of values. They believe that economic value creation and social value creation are complementary. They believe in making money and doing good. StartingBloc strives to give Fellows the tools and resources they need to accelerate their impact.

 

What draws me to social innovation/entrepreneurship:

SInce I've experienced many of life's ills from a very young age, I've always had a keen awareness that avoidance of problems or seeking simple solutions often amounts to band-aids that leave the major wounds underlying the problems untreated. I've always been oreinted around finding unique solutions outside of my limited resources. It is this same spirit that drives me towards social innovation/social enterprise. In my experience as a social justice advocate, grass-roots organizer, and public policy advocate, I have utilized the resources available to me within the non-profit world. Though I have had wins in the various projects and campaigns I've been involved with, I can't help but notice the limitations in the field and desire a new framework for making lasting change. My interest in social innovation lies in a firm desire to move beyond the often reactive and silo driven frameworks that I've experienced so far, and to work with people from different sectors and experiences to craft new frameworks and innovative solutions that will hopefully make for lasting change.

 

I ask that you support me in this journey! Thanks!

 

- Michael
