Have a great idea that will change the world for the better? Startup Weekend DC Social Impact Edition is the place to launch it!

Your concept can include those that help people form better habits (e.g., HelloWallet or activity trackers), assist people in using natural resources more efficiently (e.g., OPOWER), have a related social mission (e.g., SoapBox Soaps or Toms Shoes), or support social entrepreneurship (e.g., Kiva).
