Global Social Entrepreneurship Focus of New Partnership

Thursday, December 12, 2013

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has convened a three-year partnership that will invest in young entrepreneurs who are pioneering innovative new models to address global development challenges.

The partnership will invest in 20 young social innovators working in developing countries in two classes of the Echoing Green Global Fellows Program, according to USAID. The project goal is to “prime the pump” for global social entrepreneurship by supporting individual entrepreneurs as well as by fostering the growth of “social entrepreneurship ecosystems” and increasing support for social innovators in developing countries.
