Spark Social Change – StartingBloc Institute of Social Innovation 2010


If you have an interest in corporate social responsibility and the development of sustainable strategies for addressing social and environmental issues, you may be interested in the StartingBloc Fellowships next spring.

“StartingBloc is a global community of social innovators creating new solutions to timeworn problems.” Each year the fellowship begins with a five-day long Institute for Social Innovation (in either New York or Boston).  The institute exposes the Fellows to both industry practitioners and professors who both lecture and teach workshops on Enterprise Planning, Finance Basics, Corporate Responsibility and more. It focuses on networking and building life-long skills.

Here are the agendas from last spring’s New York Institute and Boston Institute.

Following the institute, Fellows enter the StartingBloc Alumni network where they have access to

  • Job and internship opportunities
  • Graduate school opportunities
  • Continuing education programs
  • Business plan mentoring
  • An amazing network of diverse, yet like-minded individuals driven to make a difference

This year the Boston Institute runs from February 11-15, 2010 at Tufts Fletcher School and MIT Sloan School of Management. The New York City Institute runs March 5-7 and 27-28, 2010 at Yale School of Management, NYU Wagner and Columbia Business School.
