About this Event
Do you want to connect with people who would like to have a positive impact in the world? Here's the place to be !
Do you want to not only complain but also find solutions to the problems you'd like to see solved? Feel empowered with our vibrant community !
Come and hear pitches by Social Entrepreneurs and brainstorm on their ideas, share your own experience and point of view on how businesses can use empathy to change the world to a better place.
We are proud to announce that we have a speaker for this event, the amazing Isabel Allen, the full-time coordinator of Taste Before You Waste !
This organisation from Amsterdam, together with hundreds of amazing volunteers, has been saving tons upon tons of food in the last 5 years in Amsterdam East and elsewhere.
It's been an amazing journey for them, and now they also launched their Patreon page, let's hear why, and listen to Izzie explaining about how they work, what Covid meant for them as a food surplus organisation and more !
Their FB page:
We also want to have a discussion around the global evolution towards clean energy and the possible impacts of the significant changes that occurred in just the last few months. Hopefully our speaker, if any, will have what to say about that as well ;-)
What to expect of our events in general:
Sometimes we have a planned workshop, sometimes pitches, games, workshops by Sapient Social & Environmental Enterprises, our sponsors in the Netherlands, and many more event formats. Right now we are limited with these activities but we try our best to incorporate similar ideas which fit an online event.
We will also bring guest speakers often, as described above already, mostly social entrepreneurs to expose to us their ideas and give us some answers to any question you would like to ask.
We are always open for anything you want to bring forward, as long as it is inline with making sense & social business. Come and try your workshop, show us something cool you have created, anything you like, just contact us and we'll accommodate.
Do you have an upcoming pitch you'll like to practice? Bring it on ! We'll help you improve it !
For this please contact us in advance to make sure there is time in the program.
