Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Friday, February 19th:

3M has announced an investment in MAMA Sustainable Incubation AG, a Berlin-based, technology incubator specializing in the development of solutions for emerging green markets such as renewable energy, sustainable architecture, and water treatment. 3M New Ventures, 3M’s Germany-based company, identifies highly innovative companies and future technologies and guides 3M’s parent-company investments in those areas. MAMA searches out visionary green entrepreneurs to explore and develop early-stage innovations that could create scalable solutions to large sustainability challenges.

The Microfinance Association has announced its Global Academy Program, a three-month course of study developed by MA and Marconi University of Italy. It is aimed at graduates seeking to develop a professional career in microfinance, with an emphasis on international development. On completion of the course, students are required to complete a three-month internship at a microfinance organization.
