"The team at Inspiring Stories have opened my eyes to a whole new world – social enterprise, mentors, awards, and a community of peers across New Zealand. My goal is to cure treatable blindness in the South Pacific. We're doing that by building an ethical beauty company that provides profits to the Fred Hollows Foundation."
– Bonnie Howland, CEO, Indigo & Iris
"I've set up a food scrap collection service in Christchurch's CBD that diverts waste to landfill, creates compost for the community garden, and a new revenue stream to support local food resilience. Thanks to Inspiring Stories I've developed my skills, my venture, and built an awesome network across New Zealand."
– Louis Go, Founder, CultivateWaste
"I'm working to help young people tackle abusive relationships, having experienced these challenges first-hand myself. The work that Inspiring Stories does is having a positive impact for so many young New Zealanders – showcasing what's possible, providing hope, and the skills and tools to make dreams a reality."
