You don’t have to build a scalable startup.

We’ve built a social enterprise in Myanmar that trains, mentors and lends to micro enterprises. At the start the development community consistently wrote us off because we “aren’t scalable.” That’s ok — we loved what we did, knew the stories of lives changed through the 100 businesses we helped start, and gained a better grasp of the culture around entrepreneurship in Myanmar from our four years of just doing something than any of the guys still searching for their scalable model because “it’s the only way to have big impact.”

Head down and ship.
