Learning about Social Business

Social Business will play a vital role in eradicating poverty. This was the main message from Krupa Patel, a Global Shaper from the World Economic Forum. Krupa gave an inspiring talk about how her non-profit Anza identify, train and help develop local social businesses and encourage entrepreneurship that combines both profit and social goals. A few of the key learnings were:

Innocent: “The value of our ideas lies in using them for the development of countries and continents”.

Zuwena: “Do not count how many times you fail to do something, instead the number of times you stood up to accomplish your goal in life”.

Bulat: “Don’t hesitate when you try to solve people’s problems. Your attempts will be appreciated and you will get support”.
