Social & Business Co-Creation Google+ Hangout

Online panel: Social & Business Co-Creation 
March 27, 2014


We live in a world of harsh social and environmental challenges and accelerating change. While many are trying hard to address these challenges, most efforts are still siloed and thus lack sustainability and scale. How to join forces and find win-win models going beyond the traditional tensions between social-mission and profit-making organizations?

Explore how your organization can co-create with organizations from other sectors to generate social impact at scale while advancing its strategic goals. The panel will discuss opportunities and barriers linked to co-creation through the experience of a leading company and social entrepreneur.

Featured Panelists:

·         Jean-Christophe Laugée, Social Innovation and Ecosystem Director, Danone

·         Miguel Neiva, Founder of Color Add, Ashoka Fellow

·         Stéphanie Schmidt, Director at Ashoka
