Today, I felt grateful to be surrounded by people from different industries who are all passionate about social business. We discuss if love is all we need or money is all we need when it comes to starting and enhancing social business. Our outcome is that if one person really loves what he or she is doing, this motivation will be able to drive the person to figure out the rest of the ‘how’. Including how to make money and make the business sustainable.
Then, we discuss which incubator to select when it comes to starting and enhancing social business. One of the scenes happening now in incubation industry was about the failure of startup after entrepreneur left the incubator program. We discuss on various factor why this happen too.
With the ending of Day 1, I realized it really gave me so much of realization and perspective that I have never thought of before coming to the summit. I realized social business is a field that is so wide. I embrace the discussion that I was having the whole day with people, what I really valued was the sharing of perspective on how we define and see social business as a field worth fighting for.
