Making Social Innovation Pop
Introduction
At Yoxi, we search for amazing people who work hard to change the world, and we connect them to new opportunities by telling their stories in creative, compelling ways. We call these people Social Innovation Rockstars (SIRs) because they are original thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and fearless leaders who care about creating lasting social value.
