With a seemingly endless supply of reports on the impacts of climate change, the social pressures in cities, and the fragility of our food systems, NOW is the BEST TIME to be a social entrepreneur.
Driven by a mission to solve the greatest human challenges, unlike 10 to 15 years ago when the term became popular, the challenges that our systems are facing as we urbanize hundreds of millions of people a year are now tangible. AND with that tangibility comes engagements, catalysts for change, and a better understanding of the value proposition for solutions.
Solutions that were once seen as “good”, as trade offs, as something required government subsidies to make viable, or had to attract “patient investors” that were willing to put their money into investments with a lower expectation for return.
For me, those days have past, and while many will find it difficult to accept the challenges we face, now is the best time to see those challenges as the foundation from which to build ideas, teams, and organizations.
Driven by the belief that change begins with a single step, Richard Brubaker has spent the last 15 years in Asia working to engage, inspire, and equip those around him to take their first step.
Acting as a catalyst to driving sustainability, Brubaker works with government, corporate, academic and non-profit stakeholders to bring together knowledge, teams, and tools that develop and execute their business case for sustainability.
