These people (PopTech!) are looking to help 10-20 'social innovators'
from around the world in their yearly programme.

People here are very well connected and known for 'getting it done'.
FL/OSS is by definition disruptive and innovative - exactly their
community of interest.

Perhaps you know people or forums that would be interested or good
candidates for this programme.



"Around the world, visionary change agents are hard at work incubating
new approaches to the planet’s toughest challenges. Yet they’re often
doing so without taking advantage of the latest tools and thinking in
technology, communications and innovation – or a network of experts,
peers, and supporters who can help them truly change the world.

"Introduction to the Social Innovation Fellows Program
The PopTech Social Innovation Fellows program is designed to help fill
that gap – to equip the next generation of world-changing innovators
with the tools, insights, visibility and social network that can help
them scale their impacts to new heights."


"The faculty for PopTech’s Social Innovation Fellows Program contributes
to a unique, cutting-edge training program designed to accelerate
positive impact. "


"PopTech Social Innovation Fellows are high potential young leaders with
new approaches poised for transformational impact. Most are working
internationally – as far away as Bhutan, India, South Africa, and Brazil
– are in their mid-30s, and boast 8-10 years of experience working on
pressing global challenges. They are the world-changers of tomorrow."
