In this category, we look at women entrepreneurs  maximising the digital dividend to reach and impact people and community. The systems and services connected to the digital and online space are improving quality of life but how are we making these transformational changes happen at scale, happen at a community level? As demonstrated by many platforms, using digital can help fund raising, increase support, bring the community together and truly deliver for the purpose of social impact.

For example, what can be done to improve quality of health through eHealth/mHealth services, quality of education though eLearning/mLearning, providing financial services to the unbanked, and the direct improvement of the earning capacity of people and nations’ GDP by opening up new markets, providing trade information and tools? These benefits are the dividends of digital penetration and the enablers of this wide reaching platform of digital. It’s embracement is worldwide and effective. We wanted to know these stories and that’s how the social impact category was born.
