I thought I'd share with my fellow global coolers and invite you to apply for an upcoming event called Social Startup 48 (http://ss48.org).
SS48 is an event where passionate and like-minded people come together for 48 hours to build and launch startup enterprises that create a positive social impact.
Participants will include business folks, marketing gurus, designers, techies, entrepreneurs and more. Teams will focus on a social issue and work together to develop the business plan and strategy required to solve it.
Along the way, teams have the opportunity to build networks and learn new skills. Mentors will also be available to share wisdom while guest speakers deliver talks that inspire.
The event is only $50, for the whole weekend, and this also includes lunches, dinners, morning/afternoon teas and snacks.
The event takes place on 31 August - 2 September at Inspire9, a converted warehouse now used for co-working and collaboration. Applications close on Friday 3 August. For more information, check out http://ss48.org.
Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions about the event!
