We know that our world is full of problems:

  • The air we breathe and the water we drink
  • The cities we live in and our well-being
  • Global warming
  • Ageing and special needs
  • Growing wealth gap, inequality and poverty, in the world and in China
  • The unpredictable future of work with robots and AI

Challenges seem endless and we see an urgent need to:

  1. Encourage and support more social entrepreneurs to turn ideas into solutions.
  2. Make start ups more social; B-Corp, a new and growing movement.
  3. Create sustainable business models and bring in more business skills alongside the social aims
  4. Engage businesses in helping change the world

The time is right. There is a big future for social innovation in China. Trends we have seen include:

  • A real mood for doing, especially amongst young people
  • China government focus on social innovation, centrally and locally
  • Leadership in the world, especially post-Trump
  • Access to technology and manufacturing

Join the Green Drinks March Forum for a discussion with Michael Norton on how he sees the world changing, positive projects and solutions he is a part of, where are the biggest opportunities, and how can social entrepreneurs overcome challenges to grow their enterprises, and thus, create impact.
