Social entrepreneurrrrrrssssssss

I came across this news on The Star which is aimed at social entrepreneurs. It says:

Young entrepreneurs who have businesses with social causes, here’s your chance to pitch for funding from international organisations later this year.
Striking isn't it? Does MORSEHack qualify for this? It probably needs a better name, any suggestions?

The criterias according to the article are:
  • those below 30 years old
  • have revenue-generating enterprises that benefit the community
  • use information and communication technologies (ICT) widely
Not too sure about the revenue-generating part but definitely the benefit the community part. Also, ICT is the core of MORSEHack isn't it? This all looks so tempting, doesn't it?

getting the revenue-generating status while keeping it non-profit is highly tricky. It can be done though but you need someone who would be assigned exclusively on that part, and only that part. Need a partner?
