Be a Biographer – Crowdsourcing Design Challenge

The Blind Project launches a crowdsourcing design challenge called “Be a Biographer” to help victims and survivors of the commercial sex trade.

Do you imagine a world where profit comes from moral purpose? Where every purchase is a vote? And where creativity challenges the world’s perception of what is possible?

The social enterprise ‐ a sustainable business that combines non‐profit social purposes with for‐profit market strategies ‐ is no longer a niche idea. The Blind Project is proudly leading the charge with the launch of Be A Biographer, a crowdsourcing design challenge for a new sustainable style brand called Biographe.
