AFTER SUNRISE: RYSEC Workshop 2
THE STATS: 40 young social entrepreneurs. 13 speakers+panelists. 8 workshop segments. 1 speed-dating lunch.
40 young aspiring social entrepreneurs came for our full-day workshop held at the Lexmark Headquarters @ Novena Square. On the menu: Root Cause Analysis, Strategy Planning, Business Model design, and other tools for business fundamentals. But all tools and no stories is boring-as, so we threw in not one, but two panels featuring awesome folks like Meng Weng Wong (serial entrepreneur, angel investor and breakout star of the day), Rob Kraybill from Impact Investment Exchange Asia, and other great peeps. The panels: "What makes a great entrepreneur?"; and "Moolah: Where can I get it?".
Check out some snaps below, courtesy of none other than Meng Wong (also a guerilla photographer) unless otherwise stated. Also, more pics on our Facebook page (go like us!).
AFTER SUNDOWN: think&drink5
After lots of brainstorming (and brainstuffing) over the day, it was time to let our hair down. We headed down to Group Therapy coffee @ Duxton Road for think&drink5 which we aptly themed around SE as well - Social Entrepreneurship: Realities of transitioning from theory to practice.
Our eclectic panel: Tong Yee (School of Thought), Olivia Choong (Green Drinks Singapore), Meng Wong (silicon valley rockstar + awesome person).
And these great conversations and ideas don't stop here. If you missed the workshop, and Think & Drink (we forgive you), you can still get in on the action:
