MILLER CENTER FELLOWS serves as a pilot for the feature length documentary SILICON VALLEY FOR SOCIAL GOOD.  It follows Santa Clara University students abroad as they work through the Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship to help social entrepreneurs with business ventures designed to promote sustainability and social good in developing countries.  

The full length film will explore the challenges faced by start-ups working to address social and environmental problems, many a result of climate change, and the high tech execs who volunteer to mentor them on best business strategies for growth.  Why would some of the highest paid corporate leaders on the planet just give away their time to assist fledgling operations that are far from a sure thing?  Stay tuned.
