World Bank’s Development Marketplace has started a blog to exchange and expand knowledge about innovation and social entrepreneurship for early stage development around the world.
Practitioners from different backgrounds and previous winners will discuss projects, share lesson learned, tools and resources. Expanding beyond the yearly themed global competitions (such as sustainable development, water, sanitation, energy, services for the poor) the blog provides a virtual meeting place where DM participants can collaborate from various locations around the world to create new unexpected opportunities.
