Social innovation is the pursuit of innovative, transformative, and sustainable solutions to social problems.
The problems facing today's world - global poverty, disease, climate change - are more complex than ever before, and solutions require interdisciplinary thinking and cross-sector collaboration.
We encourage innovative solutions, whether through the development of a new solution (known as entrepreneurship) or the application of an existing solution to a new context (known as intrapreneurship).
