When for-profit joins hands with non-profit and charity, to seed the soils of change, new possibilities can be made. In an ever increasing world of crises, austerity and lack, society is made to believe that new dreams and projects are not meant to thrive or survive. But when a group of dedicated philanthropists decide to provide resources and mentorship to new social change projects – this leads the way for businesses and venture partners to take note and follow suit about investing in social capital and social good. Perhaps we might even learn how lives are positively impacted when someone from a different world decides to invest in a life changing idea.
