Ashoka, the Zermatt Summit Foundation, Fondation Guilé, DPD and Boehringher Ingelheim are launching an unprecedented online collaborative competition, Social & Business Co-Creation: collaboration for impact [2] to source, highlight and catalyze innovative Co-Creation projects in Europe led by social-mission organisations, traditional businesses and public institutions.

They are looking for projects that illustrate new forms of interaction between social and business to create shared social and economic value at scale, contributing to the common good. To do this they need your help!

Competition entries can cover a wide range of solutions, from innovative job creation schemes, to the development of new products and services to address essential needs of underserved populations or “last mile” solutions to make these accessible to all. At the core of each project should be the potential to create a more inclusive and human economy, change organisational structures and enable professionals at all levels to become engaged changemakers who turn problems into opportunities.
