The folks at MIT know a thing or two about startups. Here are some great lessons you can apply to your Project Wildfire pitch:
Hard to believe the day is actually here. After 18 months of hard work, dozens of meetings, many late nights and hundreds of hours of collaborations, Project Wildfire is about to launch.
All the pieces are in place: the website is up, the launch party is booked, the funding is in place, the mentors are ready... All we need now is your passion and your dreams.
The project came about through the founders' belief that while the private sector can't solve all of the world's most pressing problems, the world's most pressing problems can't be solved without the private sector. We believe that business can and should be a force for good in the world, and that by transforming the way business is done we can change the world.
Around the world, social business or social enterprise is changing the rules of the game. No longer strictly focused on the financial bottom line, social businesses are putting mission first - and making a profit while doing it.
We look forward to seeing the amazing ideas that will come about during the contest.
May you always live your dreams.
