2011 Call for Nominations for the Social Innovation Fellows Program

PopTech, a unique global innovation network of cutting-edge leaders, thinkers and doers with a mission to accelerate the positive impact of world changing people, projects and ideas. It is currently accepting nominations for the 2011 PopTech Social Innovation Fellows Program.

Each year, under this program, PopTech 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.

Selected fellows get an opportunity to participate in an all-expenses-paid, multi-day intensive program focused on insights and tools for accelerating and scaling “big bet” innovations, such as branding, media relations, social/Web2.0 media, finance, leadership, digital storytelling, design for impact and organizational development.

To be eligible to be nominated, candidates should be working  in critical fields such as energy, green technology, empowering adolescent girls in developing countries, distributed health diagnostics, healthcare modeling, the environment, performing arts, water, education and other areas with significant beneficial impacts with highly disruptive breakthrough innovations to solve previously intractable problems; they should have positive track record as leaders in social innovation; work in organizations that are well positioned for sustainable growth and high impact; and are passionate leaders with a high potential for collaboration and success.

Fellows may be nominated by another individual or organization, self-nominated, or nominated from within the PopTech network. The open nomination process closes on March 31, 2011. For more information, visit this link.
