The challenge has been set– Girltank, the she-lab for entrepreneurship and second generation Start-Up Chile participant, is seeking to find 10,000 young women social entrepreneurs, innovators, and heroes. Their goal? “We want to show the world that young women from every region of the planet are making powerful contributions to society and leading social change. We want to tell your stories!” says Tara Roberts, one of Girltank’s co-founders.
Stemming from their movement to inspire women leaders, the 10,000 Names in 100 Days challenge was created in order to share stories of triumph and struggle with fellow entrepreneurs and with the world-at-large while promoting growth and scalability among the women’s’ social ventures.
There are no age restrictions for the challenge but entrants should fit into one or more of the the following roles: social entrepreneurship, founder of a nonprofit or social enterprise, artist bringing to light a social issue, a community-change initiator, a humanities researcher, or technology inventor whose products make life easier and better for others.
Each entry will receive a copy of “Catching Suki,” a short story by U.K.-based author Sarah Alderson (Hunting Lila and Fated), and the following prizes will be raffled by Girltank:
- $25 Amazon gift card
- $100 self-care package from LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics
- Apple iPad2
- An all-access pass to TED Global Conference 2013
