Harvard Social Enterprise Conference 2016

Learnt so much about social entrepreneurship at SECON 2016, particularly from Gerald Chertavian, Founder/CEO of Year Up, Jordyn Lexton, Founder/Executive Director of Drive Change, and Marcus Shingles, CEO of XPRIZE Foundation.

Some quotes that I really liked:

“Teachers are mini revolutionaries in the classrooms.”

“Social enterprises have to think of system change. You have to work with the system, not against it.”

“True nobility lies superior to your formal self. Are you changing?”

“Nail it before you scale it.”

“People closest to the problems are closest to the solutions.”

“All entrepreneurship is social. You’re building a culture.”

“I left this planet better off when I found it.”
