"The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator" a Kickstarter project
Titled "The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator", the book features the likes of Medic Mobile, WE CARE Solar, Ushahidi, PlanetRead and DataDyne - with a Foreword from Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
"The Rise of the Reluctant Innovator" highlights the personal stories of ten social innovators from around the world. Ten social innovators - ordinary people - who randomly stumbled across problems, injustices and wrongs and, armed with little more than determination and belief, decided not to turn their backs but to dedicate their lives to solving them.
Why do we need this book?
Despite the tens of billions spent each year in international aid, some of the most promising and exciting social innovations and businesses have come about by chance. Many of the people behind them didn't consciously set out to solve anything, but they did. Welcome to the world of the "reluctant innovator".
With 3 days left to back this project, with £3,811 raised, they are so close to reaching their goal of £ 4'000. Thanks for backing this project.
