Innovative Business Models that Create Meaningful Impact

INNOVATIVE BUSINESS MODELS THAT CREATE MEANINGFUL IMPACT
Over the last few years, we have seen the emergence of business models that have disrupted industries, changed behaviour and made a real impact to society. From Microfinance to Impact Investing, to the Circular Economy and Social Entrepreneurship, business and society have developed sustainable models that create real impact. Aided by the technology boom, concepts like the sharing economy and e-learning have come to life, and are now bringing real change to the industries in which they operate.
This year, the Doing Good Doing Well conference focused on some of these topical innovations that are changing the face of society and business. Particularly, on how they can engender a more responsible business culture. For example, does the sharing economy really make a positive social and environmental impact? Does the rise of impact investing provide social entrepreneurs with the right tools to start impact-driving businesses? What are some of the new and innovative ways of providing financing and banking services to the poorest in our society? How can we use design thinking to create solutions to alleviate poverty? We debated and discussed these and other topics, and were inspired by keynote speeches from some of the people and the companies that are on the forefront of this innovation led transformation.
