Along with many great partners theSedge.org team hosted Santiago’s first ever Social Innovation Weekend on December 13 & 14, 2013.

Over a total of 15 hours, 40 participants learned the basics of Social Enterprise design with the help of workshops in Social Enterprise Frameworks, Design Thinking, Rapid Prototyping and the Social Business Model Canvas.  Full of inspiring ideas, 40 participants pitched 17 different social enterprise ideas.  Then, teams were formed to work further on the top 8 ideas with the help of 5 experienced social entrepreneurs.  At the end of the weekend, 8 teams pitched their ideas to our panel of judges fromDimacofi‘s CSR team, Start Up Chile and Ikuna.cl.

Congratulations to the winning team Juus.to, and runners-up, Activitate and Constructora!
