The Power of Social Entrepreneurship

Will Talks Biz Podcast Episode 59 The power of social entrepreneurship

“With everything going on in the world there’s an opportunity for having more people at the table thinking about solutions in creative ways.”

Neetal Parekh, the founder of Innov8social, joins for a conversation about the power of social entrepreneurship. She is an incredibly passionate guide for aspiring change-makers and dedicated to making social entrepreneurship more accessible and actionable. Her company develops tools, content, and programs to help individuals enter the world of social entrepreneurship. One of Innov8social’s innovative concepts is Impactathons. They combine hackathons, workshops, and talks to empower people in developing and pitching their ideas for solving social issues.

Neetal’s authenticity and passion for her work are evident throughout the conversation. In fact, those were key factors that led to her winning a recent business pitch competition. It is a great way of highlighting the importance of being genuine and committed when pitching a business idea. When you pitch a business idea, make sure you are clear on the commitment to follow through on promises.

Like many entrepreneurs, her journey has not been easy. Throughout our conversation she shares experiences and failures that give valuable insight into the side of an entrepreneurial journey that is often not discussed.

This is a great episode about social entrepreneurship that offers practical tips on starting your own venture. If you find Neetal’s story and approach as inspiring and informative as I do, make sure to connect with her and let her know.
