Making a difference in the world around you
For the greater good
Doing well while doing good is more than an adage — it’s an entrepreneur’s dream. But beyond the indisputable benefits of job creation, what’s the best way to make a difference?
Entrepreneurs build a better working world by thinking outside the box. Take the panelists who discussed making a difference in the world around you:
- Edgar Bronfman Jr. of Endeavor wants to level the playing field
- Mark Ruiz of Hapinoy and MicroVentures Inc. wants to mix social objectives with business
- Mohammed Al Barwani of MB Holding Company wants to make sure that his oil and gas operations give back to the community
All three spoke about their ventures, challenges and successes, with Edgar having a fitting final thought: "You can’t produce a profit without doing a million other things, and it’s the other things that are more important."
