  • Netspring is almost two years old! Established in February 2012, our social enterprise has been able to fulfill its promise of protecting the environment and promoting education through the Green IT Classroom project. This project has helped over 20,000 Chinese children and teachers gain access to environmentally-friendly computers, paving the way for them to have a brighter future. Such success could not be achieved without a dedicated and talented staff and volunteers. In any enterprise, its team is its most valued component. At Netspring, we are very lucky.

  • What business entrepreneurs are to the economy, social entrepreneurs are to social change. In How To Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs And the Power of New Ideas, David Bornstein writes that social entrepreneurs are, the driven, creative individuals who question the status quo, exploit new opportunities, refuse to give up--and remake the world for the better. According to Bornstein, each single social enterprise pursues a better future, which not only tell us something about sharing and extending love, but also deliver the possibility of an ideal life. And this possibility comes up with every little change.
