Women put community first. On average, women reinvest 80% of their income from Kiva programs back into the community.

Challenge

Enabling Social Innovators to pool and share ideas and resources

Social Innovators have a tendency to work in silos, but can benefit from more
collaboration. This is highly dependent on personal networks and face-to-
face meetings. It takes time to form an effective professional and personal
network to execute their ideas.

Application features you can build for the Social Marketplace:

  • Contribute content, questions, ideas, opportunities to collaborate
  • Enable and facilitate discussions
  • Recommend connections using data analytics (personal data) and area-based sensing
  • Match needs and resources, e.g. mentors, partners, funding, etc.
  • Incentivize Social Innovators to use these features to help them in their personal and professional development
