“Learn the difference between being right and being effective”: A Social Entrepreneur’s take on the art of it all
In July 2015, 9 CEO’s from social enterprises across Africa and India convened in Silicon Valley for a 10-day training and networking boot camp. SAP’s Corporate Social Responsibility team in conjunction with nonprofit partner Acumen leveraged SAP’s talent, technology expertise, and partner ecosystem to help crack these entrepreneurs’ most complex problems.
For greater insight into the work of a founding CEO in an emerging market, I got the chance to interview Mark Davies, one of the participating social entrepreneurs and CEO of Esoko. Esoko is doing great work, running a rapidly growing and inspired business in an emerging market. Mark’s take on entrepreneurship, and doing work that moves you, will be the best 2 minutes of your day!
