Inspire Business Students to Use Their Skills for Good

Do you want to connect with social enterprises and academics across the world? Get published? Inspire hundreds, even thousands of MBA students to join the social enterprise movement? How about win $1000?

If so, then choose a social enterprise to write about for the NextBillion 2011 Case Writing Competition, and send us the short Competition Entry form to us by Tuesday, November 30, 2010! Final cases will be due on February 18, 2011.

Winning cases, like last year’s winning cases that are now available on Amazon, will be published and taught in business courses around the world. Winners will also receive cash prizes, be interviewed and profiled on NextBillion, and receive an autographed copy of Acumen Fund founder Jaqueline Novogratz’s The Blue Sweater.

The William Davidson Institute, Acumen Fund, and Ashoka, sponsors of this competition, hope to create a powerful repository of social enterprise cases that will prove useful to current and future entrepreneurs.

You have the power to educate and inspire business students and build the next generation of socially minded businesspeople. Will you take it?
