Social Innovation Camp 2009: Call for Ideas


I was very fortunate to attend the last social innovation camp in London last December. The passion coming from the great social entrepreneurs there was inspiring! In fact, if you didn’t see them, check them all out:

We are proud supporters of their good work. So if you have a great social innovation, the time to submit entries is now!

Prizes announced at half-time for Social Innovation Camp call for ideas!

You’ve only got four weeks left to enter your idea for Social Innovation Camp Scotland.

Over one weekend at the Saltire Centre, Glasgow we’re bringing together some of the best of the UK’s software developers and designers with those at the sharp end of social problems.

Their mission will be to turn six back-of-the-envelope ideas that could change the world into social start-ups – complete with working software. And all in under 48 hours.

And here’s what the two most promising ideas will win:

– Up to £5,000 in start-up funding from Firstport

– Three days of time from creative web development company, IfLooksCouldKill

– Branding workshop from design agency, O Street

You can check out all the details here.

So why not give it a go and enter an idea!

Remember: your idea must be really, really early stage and you don’t need your own team. Find out how it works here and check out all the details of how to enter your idea here: http://scotland.sicamp.org

You’ve got until Friday 22nd May 2009 to get involved!”
