In the global Editions Month contest, Startup Weekend Social Innovation has grabbed the second place from among entries from 11 different countries for having the right story, getting the right people to the event and starting community conversations! And yes, the organizers have won a free trip to the Blackstone Community Symposium in Madrid, Spain! Read the story that won the prize here (http://story.socialinnovation.org.in/).
Thanks to the generosity of our Partner, Intuit India, our participants can stay overnight and work through the 54 hours, with food, shelter and entertainment taken care of!
Thanks to UnLtd Tamil Nadu, our Resource Partner, we have a truly diverse set of participants. We have participants coming in from places as different as Auroville and a tribal community in Tamil Nadu!
