Announcing the Social Innovation Fellows Class of 2010

The PopTech Social Innovation Fellows Program is in its third year of accelerating the work of world-changing leaders, and the Class of 2010 – announced today – continues the trend of offering promising solutions to global challenges.

This year’s class of sixteen Fellows work in such key areas as conflict resolution and violence prevention, energy, environmental technology, international development and sustainable agriculture. They work around the world and use a variety of business models – for-profit, non-profit and hybrid – to achieve their goals.

To get a sense of the full breadth and impact of their work, check out the full list of 2010 Fellows.

In October, at their first gathering, the Fellows will participate in an intensive training program and then present at PopTech 2010 (Oct. 20-23 in Camden, Maine – registrations are available here).

The partners who help make the program possible – including American Express, PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation – are supporting a truly inspiring group of high-potential leaders.

Congratulations to the 2010 Fellows, who join the amazing classes of 2008 and 2009 as the standard-bearers for social innovation and positive change!
