Imagine a World Full of Social Entrepreneurs

Ever wondered what it would be like if we had a world full of social entrepreneurs and good business ideas?

Conversations of ‘What If?’

Today I was talking with P, my lifelong partner and best friend.

We were talking about our dreams and goals – one of which is to travel all over the globe, to meet new people, discover languages and cultures and foods and environments. To immerse in the cultural diversity and beauty of our planet.

I suggested that, apart from this, what if we were to do some good in each of the places that we visit? Or, even what if we were to discover and uncover some of the great social entrepreneurs in various parts of the world?

Today I came across a really interesting article on the internet and it was an article about social innovation and good business ideas.

Connecting People in Developing Countries

One great social innovation at the moment is with regards to mobile technology.

One of those important P factors in marketing involved the important area of your product.
