Cholera is an intractable problem in Haiti. Since October 2010, over 800,000 people have fallen ill and over 8,000 have died. A new project based in Cambridge, MA, aims to take an innovative approach to curb the spread of this preventable disease.
On November 1-3, the Archimedes Project will be sponsoring a social enterprise competition, where teams of five will design and propose plausible and scalable business plans to address the cholera epidemic in Haiti. These teams will intentionally include people from a variety of different backgrounds including business, nonprofit, academic, and government sectors.
Three teams will present their plans on November 3rd, and the winning social enterprise will be on a fast track for implementation, with the goal to launch the enterprise within a year.
