A crash course in changing the world.
Paul Polak–founder of Colorado-based non-profit International Development enterprises (IDE)—is dedicated to developing practical solutions that attack poverty at its roots. He also wrote "Out of Poverty" a book that explains what he does.
For the past 25 years, Paul has worked with thousands of farmers in countries around the world—including Bangladesh, India, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Myanmar, Nepal, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe–to help design and
produce low–cost, income–generating products that have already moved 17 million people out of poverty.
I think Paul is a brilliant example of social inovating. He is one of my role models. I have taken to following him on twitter for more ideas on inovation.
