Write a case study and win!

We need your expertise in creating cutting-edge business cases on social enterprise. Good case studies can steer students towards social enterprise for years to come! This is an excellent opportunity: NextBillion.net is now accepting submissions for business cases for the NextBillion 2011 Case Writing Competition. Winners will receive cash prizes and media coverage, in addition to royalties. Cases may be developed by students with the supervision of an educator. The competition is co-sponsored by Ashoka, William Davidson Institute (WDI) at the University of Michigan, and Acumen Fund. Please submit business cases describing organizations that use market-based approaches to economic or social development, social ventures or Hybrid Value Chains where businesses and social entrepreneurs join insights and assets. Winning cases will be taught in business schools around the world, facilitating the integration of social enterprise topics into MBA courses.
