Villgro (formerly known as Rural Innovations Network) is hosting the “UNCONVENTION – Where Path Breakers Meet Path Makers” in Chennai on December 10-12, 2009. As we wrote about before, a business plan competition called Wantrapreneur was held to select finalists, who will present one final time before the awards are announced.
Besides the business plan competition and awards, the UNCONVENTION will also have a conference and innovation fair. The Summit will include high profile speakers such as Paul Polak, Deep Joshi, Pamela Hartigan, and a number of other “gurus of the social sector.” The Innohub will be an opportunity to form business partnerships between innovators and entrepreneurs. Finally, be sure to vote via SMS for the Villgro Awards, which includes categories from social enterprise, media, journalists, investor, incubator, and lifetime achievement.
