Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
Stan Karpenko, my co-founder (26 years old), has previous experiences running two award-winning social enterprises in Birmingham (Nationwide Learning and Enterprise Academy), starting a small property management company (total portfolio 2.2 Million) and co-founding a hotel revenue optimisation and booking management software company in Lithuania (acquired by YIELDPLANET.com in 2014).
Myself, Elodie Draperi, I have been involved in social entrepreneurship for a while. I have been supporting a wide range of social entrepreneurs in France and the UK through MakeSense community and my previous work at the Ministry of Ecology. I use the knowledge and expertise acquired to run my own social enterprise now.
