Social Innovation for the Developing World

Grameen Bank, Kiva, Acumen (slow capital), Skoll Foundation, Ashoka and others are leading the way in changing the world with innovative thinking, in the cause of solving the worlds most persistent problems associated with opportunity and poverty. Still though the corporate world can still deliver a can of Coca Cola more efficiently and sustainably to more parts of the world than we can a drinkable cup of water. I am looking for thought leaders who can take on the challenge of harnessing market forces and corporate models to innovate the world past the enormous human and environment challenges of the new decade. Post your ideas here and lets look for organizations corporate, gov, and non profit ready to support a challenge for the upcoming CF summit 2011.

The list can be quite extensive and shall we say unsorted. We should start a proper document/wiki to do this.
