- Albert Einstein
IFT #4 exposes young adults to a fresh perspective of looking at social problems around them, thereby driving change in the world. Children can build entrepreneurial ideas that address any of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by the UN to qualify as ‘social entrepreneurs’. When ‘social entrepreneurs’ innovate solutions using technology tools, they become ‘social techpreneurs’.
