How to Build Towards a Sustainable Future

The topic of sustainability is one that has been increasing over the last few years, as younger generations have demanded an active approach to social responsibility.

Having been involved in the financial services industry for over seven years, social impact and sustainability became two very important overarching themes and demands of newer investors. This demand was further enforced by the United Nations creating 17 sustainable development goals back in 2015 to be met by 2030 — dubbed “the 2030 agenda”.

As an individual passionate about social enterprises, being connected to them was always a challenge. As an aspiring social entrepreneur looking to connect with more experienced social entrepreneurs who have built social enterprises of their own, was another challenge.

A lot of projects never get started to begin with due to various factors that include lack of resources, tools, mentorship, and financial capital. This is especially true when it comes to social projects that present unique challenges of their own.

It’s wrong.

Building social enterprises should be placed at a priority in order to fulfill a societal need and stories of other activists and social entrepreneurs must be highlighted to create that support system.

That global connectivity must be there so we could solve serious issues that affect all of us through the power of an enterprise.
