Social EntrepreneurshipMay 08, 2019
A few years ago, I decided to become a social entrepreneur, help build a movement of thinkers, creators and artists that develop innovative projects with a purpose. For the last five years, we've been looking for the best and brightest that will help build the future of the Americas and eventually the world.
Social entrepreneurship is all about purpose. It's about what you plan to do with your 28,000 days and that something should have purpose. And that's exactly what social entrepreneurship is all about.
Social entrepreneurship is essentially the same thing as being an entrepreneur, but with one major difference instead of profit being the center force that drives the effort, its purpose. What do we want to do with our 28,000 days? What kind of needs do our communities have? If we put that as the focus and at the center of all of our efforts, we can achieve much more development in the long term.
That what we're trying to achieve. It is kind of different-- we know, but it's really exciting. So that's our organization. That's what we're trying to achieve. We'd love it if you'd be able to get involved. So that's why this vlog, we're going to be traveling to the different places. In fact, we will be looking for the entrepreneurs, the scientists, the engineers, for the teachers, for those students that are amazing minds that want to study abroad in different areas of the world will be throughout Latin America in the next few weeks. So it's exciting times, and we'd love for you to be a part of all of us.
So here's my agenda for the day. Heading to grab a bite, finish packing, finish getting everything ready, because in a few, we'll be headed to Mexico. We have our conference coming up at Georgetown University, and that's going to be a lot of fun. And we'd love to have you join us. So think about it. Think about being a part of what we're doing.
