Why you should turn into social entrepreneurship: CoDE at Social Media Week Mexico

We got an active week at Surrey Code. On Monday 8 June, I took part as invited speaker at the Social Media Week Mexico–the first Mexican chapter of the worldwide conference that curates and shares the latest innovations and insights into how social media and technology are changing business, society and culture around the world.

In 2015 the Social Media Week focuses on the theme “Upwardly Mobile: The Rise of the Connected Class How can all humans more in a connected world”. My talk was a provocation to think about the importance to go beyond revenue in entrepreneurship, and covered three things:

– the values revolution and why doing good and doing well is the new paradigm in entrepreneurship;
– what it means to be a social entrepreneur and how to achieve social goals;
– the growing importance of impact investing and crowdfunding ventures for social good.

I share here my presentation and hoping to get more social entrepreneurs on board.
