Yahoo! announced a new “social entrepreneurship campaign and competition in partnership with Nahdet El Mahrousa, an Egypt-based nongovernmental organization (NGO). Yahoo!, Yahoo! Middle East, and Nahdet El Mahrousa are spearheading an unprecedented online campaign called “Social Innovation Starts With YOU” will inspire thousands of Egyptian youth to submit entrepreneurial ideas that make a positive impact on the world. We’ll be making up to 10 grants to Egyptian youth, funding both new ideas as well as existing ones that need additional support to scale up. The campaign is also aligned with the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship that the White House is hosting on April 26th and 27th. Jerry Yang, our co-founder has the honor of delivering a keynote speech addressing entrepreneurship and innovation. His personal and professional story is such a great illustration of how a couple of college students with a good idea, access to some funds and the support of mentors (oh, and a good yodel), can change the world,” said Yahoo press release.
