What’s A Game Changer?
Game Changers lead society to knowledge. They inspire involvement and action through media. They provide example, insight and inspiration for leaders and visionaries from all fields by demonstrating how to navigate and lead the connected society.
We invited entries from all fields. Big companies, little startups, social entrepreneurs, independent thinkers, brands, causes, tools, ideas, commercial, nonprofit – all were welcome.
