Meetings I'd like to go to....Part VI

Pop!Tech Social Innovation Fellows Program:

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.

The Pop!Tech 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.

Each year, Pop!Tech selects 10-20 high potential change agents from around the world who are working on highly disruptive innovations in areas like healthcare, energy, development, climate, education, and civic engagement, among many others. Fellows work in both the for-profit and not-for-profit worlds, have a minimum of 3-5 years experience, and are working in organizations that are well positioned for sustainable growth.

Yeah, right! Someone's going to invite me....
