Ideas Factory challenges you with Social Innovation Challenge 2014

Enthusiasm, good ideas, a bagpack, 3 free days in April, irrational amount of urge to make good ideas materialize, at least 2 friends to form a team and… YOU, of course!
This is the new Ideas Factory’ challenge – Social Innovation Challenge!

On the 15th of April all of the teams will leave to 5 different locations in Bulgaria at the same time. Each team will have exactly 3 days to decipher and identify a social challenge and after that it will have to formulate an innovative “glocal” solution which will be presented in front of the local authority, business and citizen. All of these will think together of opportunity for its realization.

Three of the teams which manage to formulate the most applicable, sustainable and innovative ideas will win a grant for participation in the upcoming Academy for a social change. They will have the chance to experience the benefit of communicating with world famous mentors in the field of social entrepreneurship and innovation who will come to Bulgaria in November for Empatheast glocalizer.

If you have the guts, register your team until 8th of April at

Ideas Factory leads a course for social entrepreneurs from 9 European countries

Together with our partners from South East European Youth Network & Balkan Idea Novi Sad we made the last week of October really great, when we gathered to learn more about social entrepreneurship in the course called “Making sense in making cents”. The training was led by fabricator Yanina Taneva and our colleagues from Balkan Idea – Ivana Volf and Ana Cvetojevic and it reached to 25 youths and young social entrepreneurs from 9 countries in the marvelous location Sremski Karlovci and their environmental center and hostel. The result? Development of detailed strategy on the possible business activities in the environmental center plus dozens of further developed ideas to take, bring back and implement in local conditions! Social entrepreneurs from all countries – unite!
