BENEFITING: StartingBloc NFP

ORGANIZER: StartingBloc NFP

Stephen Marks

THE STORY:

Hello Everyone,

Social Entrepreneurship is an exciting, emerging field where social problems are addressed with more sustainable, creative solutions.  Many initiatives have been started and successfully implemented that address needs such as education, environmental impact, farming, communication, banking, and lending to the most vulnerable and in need groups of people in the world.  The initiatives are profitable and therefore do not rely on handouts and donations, making their long term impact much greater.

The more I have researched this field, the more I have become excited by the endless opportunities present within social entrepreneurship.  I was accepted as a StartingBloc fellow for their NY 2012 institute.  StartingBloc is a network that supports, connects and helps incubate Social Entrepreneurs and their ideas. The conference is $1,000 to attend, and I have set up this crowdrise page for donations towards the cost of the conference.  Any little bit you can help with is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Steve

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.
