Ever wondered how you could leave your mark and make the world a better place?

Join us as Madeleine Shaw, founder of Aisle, presents an inspiring look at how the new generation of non-traditional entrepreneurs can use their personal values and vision to launch and grow world-changing ventures. She dispels the myth that you need a business degree or a blockbuster tech idea to start a successful enterprise, arguing that passion, a willingness to step into one’s personal power, and strong relationships are what propel social entrepreneurs forward.

In this chat you’ll learn:

  • How to identify the causes you feel passionate about and how to grow a business from there
  • How for-profit ventures can be a powerful force for social change
  • A better understanding of how women, LGBTQIA+, Indigenous, and People of Color are driving leadership in this field
