Now What? Social Innovation Proposal

How’s it? I’ve just posted my business proposal for Now What?. Now What? is the Social Innovation I’ve developed from this whole experience.Now What? is an internet based portal to link recent school leavers, with community organisations in need of volunteers.
Now What? is aimed at the young adult market of 18-26yrs. It will cater directly to people within this age group who are looking to gain valuable life experience from volunteering within Australia.

The proposal can be found here….

Social Innovation Camp

Here’s a group from England who are on similar wave lengths to my studies class. They run Social Innovation Camps linking people with ideas with people with skills to bring them into being. It’s all internet based innovations. In their words,

‘Through unusual, creative events we bring together talented software developers and designers with social innovators to build effective web-based solutions to real social problems.’

The long and short of this is that they are asking for ideas to be submitted. Either to come along and be involved in the development(bit hard when its over in the UK) or allow others to take the ideas as inspiration to develop a project of their own. There’s a few projects from our studies class that could be possible for this forum. If your keen check out the site here for details.

They are an English based organisation, trying to ‘bring together talented software developers and designers with social innovators to build effective web-based solutions to real social problems.’
