my buzz & my blog

“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

GSVC 2011 Global Finals and Ideas to Impact Conference

Last reminder to join us for the
GSVC Global Finals and Awards Dinner on April 7 & 8!

Finalist teams Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, France, Indonesia, Korea, South Africa, Thailand, UK and the US will gather at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley on April 7 & 8 to compete for $45,000 in prizes. For a complete list of the GSVC Global Finalists, click here.

On Thursday, April 7, the Social Impact Assessment (SIA) Finalists will compete for the SIA Award, and on Friday, April 8, the Global Finalist teams will pitch their social ventures and engage in Q&A with a panel of expert judges. Both pitch sessions are free and open to the public, creating an invaluable opportunity for investors, entrepreneurs, students, and the broader social venture community to hear the latest innovations in the social venture space and meet the teams in person.

Friday’s presentation sessions will be available via Live Webcast.
