Social Enterprise Pitches - Ideas in Development Session

This session, much like the first Ideas in Development session I attended, consisted of several presentations from individuals trying to grow their young ideas.

Here is a listing of the presentations:

All presenters had incredibly interesting insights. And with such prominent, experienced people in the room (one of the former directors of USAID was sitting behind me), the presenters were really able to substantiate their approaches with alternative viewpoints, informed perspectives, and complimentary critique. While I don’t have many comments on the presentations themselves, I must say that not only was I quite impressed with the confidence and conviction the presenters exuded, but also by how simultaneously idealistic and practical these young graduate students were. It was truly inspirational, and a great note on which to end this exceptionally informative and engaging conference.
