Mixing money making with a social mission is not always easy in social enterprise. For many, fully embracing the dualism required of a social entrepreneur — do good and make money — is not easy. Making money is a subservient, if not uncomfortable objective.
For this live webinar, we’ll be hearing from ecopreneur, Jeroen van der Heide, co-founder of Impakt Tribe, a Netherlands-based platform that connects start-ups to Impact Investors. In the session, we’ll be discussing money; how it isn’t a dirty word for social entrepreneurs, and in fact, is absolutely necessary in order for you to “do good”. And we’ll then explore different fundraising methods for your business.
Jeroen launched his own companies with crowdfunding campaigns, and he uses his experience and knowledge to help businesses today navigate the tricky path of early investments. Jeroen has worked in the fashion industry himself since 1996, with big-name designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, DKNY and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as launching his own zero-waste brand TShared. He is a mentor at Fashion for Good.
