In 2012, a project dedicated to the late Professor S. Howard Kraye began with the intention of using business as a tool to solve social problems. The Kraye Challenge is a program intended to provide students with modest startup funding to create a socially-conscious start-up that supports the work of service organizations worldwide. Some projects take many years to develop, because they have strong and ambitious aims to support major NGOs and other service organizations in a meaningful and sustainable manner.
Have an idea for a social business? You could spearhead the project with seed funding from IBSG. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
