Engineering Social Innovation
Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014
To provide support to the “engineering journey” faced by social innovators, Santa Clara University has teamed up with ASME (the American Society of Mechanical Engineers), the Lemelson Foundation, and ANDE (Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs).
Beginning with an invitation-only leadership summit at Santa Clara University in March, the "Engineering Social Innovation" project will focus on the “pioneer gap” faced by social entrepreneurs with an aim to facilitate access to the physical resources, financial resources and knowledge networks needed to maximize the scaling potential of socially-focused ventures.
Stay tuned for more news on this important new initiative.
