DON’T GIVE UP: LESSONS FOR THE SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
If there was one lesson to take away from the Entrepreneurs panel discussion on social innovation at MaRs Discovery District, it was this: Don’t give up, because what you are doing is important.
The social innovation panel – moderated by SocialFinance.ca’s Managing Editor, Jared Walker – featured three leading social entrepreneurs as panelists: Our President Emily Branton, Ryan Porter, CEO and co-founder of Raise Your Flag and Going 180 Media; and Kevin Lee, Executive Director of Scadding Court Community Centre.
The audience were inspired with advice and insights on how to:
1) leverage the Canadian brand in international markets;
2) leverage your social impact in investor meetings; and
3) leverage the resources around you to keep you going during the hard days.
