Join Aleem Walji , formerly of Google.org, now the Practice Manager of WBI’s Innovation Team and one of the lead authors for a webinar to mark the launch of a special issue of Development Outreach magazine on “The Power of Innovation .”
In a post-crisis world, innovation  may be the single most important driver of economic growth and competitiveness. The time is right to move development forward through creative uses of technology. We now have the capacity to scale up innovative approaches to meet the needs of people at the “bottom of the pyramid” when traditional markets fail to do the job. Our authors  share their thoughts on how to mobilize innovative solutions to reduce poverty - smarter, better, faster, and differently. Global experts discuss policy, process, new applications, and projects in social enterprise and innovation.
Webinar - Thursday, July 22, 2010 3pm EST (login opens at 2:45)
