Spark Impact is a hackathon organized by NEHUB, based on Startup Weekend to help social ventures and activities. It happens in one weekend and brings international creative people from top tech companies like Google and Salesforce together to collaborate with top local talents and nonprofit organization on social impact topics.
Providing creative and innovative solutions to existing problems
Social entrepreneurs believe that the current methods for enacting social change have not been effective. They are seeking new ideas, opportunities and technologies to help solve long-standing social problems.
Reflection and correction
Good social entrepreneurs dedicate resources, both time and money, to constant evaluation of their programs. This gives them an opportunity to determine what is going well and not so well, and correct any errors made. Eventually, this circles back to my original characteristic of innovation.
