Corporate Social Innovation - Hack4Homelessness
By Disruptors Handbook • Issue #63 • View online
During the past few days we have been supporting the Vibewire Hack4Homelessness event. It was an inspiring venture.  Gavin has photos and stories going up today and you can check out the #hack4homelessness hashtag on twitter to see what we achieved with more than 50 other people in competition to hack for good.
It has led us to focus this week’s newsletter on social entrepreneurship. It’s often believed that social issues and social welfare is in the most difficult situation, as it can be hard to innovate when dealing with those who need the most help. But we are here to tell you that our experiences of social entrepreneurship really do attract great interest and support. Whether it is sustainable food and energy (which we helped bring to life at the WWF Designathon last year) or new approaches to social cities (which we did with UNSW Engineering Disruption hacks late last year) or Techfugees (run by great friends of the Disruptors) and Hack4Homelessness, there is significant and enduring commitment of the tech and creative community to solving pressing and difficult social issues.
Even if you think your organisation is quite disconnected from innovation, it may be possible to mobilise the talent and goodwill of the community to support ways to improve the great work you do.
