Invitation: SI Alumni Event in Minsk, Belarus, on 22 June 2014

Swedish Institute Alumni Network with support of Swedish Embassy in Belarus and Belarusian Republican Confederation of Entrepreneurship invites you to take part in the interactive seminar Doing well by doing good: social entrepreneurship in Belarus and Sweden followed by a networking ‘fika’. Please see the invitation from your fellow alumni below:

Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. Rather than leaving societal needs to the government or business sectors, social entrepreneurs find what is not working and solve the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution, and persuading entire societies to move in different directions. Just as entrepreneurs change the face of business, social entrepreneurs act as the change agents for society, seizing opportunities others miss to improve systems, invent new approaches, and create solutions to change society for the better.
