Up for Debate: What can Silicon Valley teach Social Entrepreneurs, and what can Social Entrepreneurs teach Silicon Valley?
For this debate, we asked some of the world's leading technology companies in Silicon Valley (Google, Twitter, LinkedIn) and some of the world's leading social entrepreneurs (Camfed in Ghana, Amazon Conservation Team in Colombia, Barefoot College in India) what they could teach each other. What is the promise and potential of technology when applied to global social challenges? How can local realities and on-the-ground insight feed into technological innovation? How can we harness each other's strengths and collaborate more effectively for change?
