ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media
The goal of the Education and Global Development Prize Group is to develop new and innovative ways to address major challenges in agriculture, capital, education, health and water. The competitions seek to highlight the most scalable enterprises that create wealth and uplift entire populations from poverty.
Concepts under consideration are for example Mobile Phone Applications
It is estimated that more than 8o% of the world will have access to a mobile telephone by 2013. The use of this technology for many applications, including revenue generation, is greatly anticipated. This competition would help to establish a new source of revenue for individuals in the developing world and institute a revolutionary form of entrepreneurship. The goal is to create a mobile application that would allow 250,000 people to earn $2 a day for a minimum of 100 days per year.
