A Better World Faster - Social Impact Challenge

Normally I do not toot the horn for superginormous companies figuring they have enough muscle already. But I want to give a shout out to Google for this one - To mark India's Independence Day this year, they launched the social Impact challenge in India - A Better World, Faster.

Copied from thier website below:

The Google Impact Challenge has launched in India in an effort to support innovators who are exploring new ways to solve the world's most pressing problems. If you’re an Indian non-profit, tell us how you would use technology and innovative approaches to tackle problems in India and around the world. Four selected non-profits will each receive a Rs 3 crore Global Impact Award and assistance from Google to help make their project a reality.
  • 5th September 2013 - Final day to apply to the Google Impact Challenge.
  • 21st October 2013 - Google announces the finalists, and the public votes online for their favourites.
  • 31st October 2013 - Each finalist team will pitch its idea to an esteemed panel of judges at an event in Delhi. Four finalists, including the non-profit chosen by the public vote, will be announced as Global Impact Award recipients.
If you missed it this year I have heard it may become annual - so watch for it next year.

It holds true that high quality professionals
which may have in-depth information about market and industrial trends frame the curriculum.

Once again, if you are serious and even advance in your dance career, you
need a specialist, a genuine professional dance teacher.
Building toys might motivate a job in engineering.
