Changemaker Day at ITESM Campus Guadalajara

Ashoka U’s newest Changemaker Campus, ITESM Guadalajara is finding new and better ways of inspiring students to think of social problems as opportunities to create change.

Last week the campus hosted the very first Changemaker Day, an event that gathered students and faculty from the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Division, as well as Ashoka Fellows. This activity was the conclusion of a semester long challenge in which students applied their skills and knowledge to design solutions to local social problems in Zapopan Guadalajara. The winners of the challenge presented their idea solutions in a Rocket Pitch format while Ashoka Fellows shared their own experiences as social entrepreneurs and gave key pointers and suggestions to the changemakers of today and tomorrow.

Isaac Lucatero, ITESM Guadalajara’s visionary Change Leader is striving to accomplish an institutional makeover, assembling a Campus wide change team and creating synergies with Ashoka Fellows. No doubt they will be giving us more to talk about.
