On August 26 Santa Clara University is host to the 2010 Global Social Benefit Incubator (GSBI) which is receiving entrepreneurs from around the world. The day will feature business plan presentations that showcase innovative adaptation of technology and models of social change.
The (GSBI) program at Santa Clara University supports sustainable social ventures. It combines classroom instruction in finance, marketing creation, organizational development and business planning. The program also includes case studies, best practices and carefully matched Silicon Valley mentors.
In 2010, the STS Center launched a three-year initiative to focus on “Renewable Energy for the Underserved.” This initiative will explore several segments of the clean energy field including off-grid power and light, energy saving devices , value chain organizations, financial services, second generation bio-fuels and distribution. This year, there are 12 social entrepreneurs that are representing the Renewable Energy Sector in the GSBI class of 2010.
Social entrepreneurship can be of great benefit to the environment, the economy and to all of humanity.
