“Live the Dream was challenging, stretching and empowering. We learned how to use research to find the root cause of the issue we wanted to tackle, create business plans, prototype and ideate, pitch, market, plan and manage finances, and so much more.”
Our involvement ranged from supporting the scholarships process, to running various events and workshops for young people throughout the forum. Every night we held events for young social entrepreneurs to connect, share stories and knowledge.
Having built Inspiring Stories from scratch, I've accumulated six years experience of figuring out what it takes to develop a purpose-driven organisation, build relationships with a range of New Zealand's leading grant funders, values-aligned corporates, government, and generate revenue.
Last week was huge, with the showcase events for our Live the Dream programme in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. More than 300 people attended in support. There is an incredible community building around this work.
