SOLVE PROBLEMS THAT MATTER
You know when you have a social enterprise idea you think will help solve a problem that really matters but you’re busy, not sure how to make it happen, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed? Well, this session is for you.

We’re focusing on design thinking in social enterprise startups. Design thinking is a human-centred approach to innovation and solving complex problems. Working out how to design a sustainable business model that has purpose and impact embedded while being financially successful and looking after your own personal wellbeing is a complex challenge.

Ben will focus on three key questions:

  1. What are problems that matter and why should I care?
  2. How do I solve them?
  3. How do I make it happen?


This is a soft launch of Ben’s book Solve Problems That Matter, the 90-day program helping you take a human-centred approach to design, build, and launch your social enterprise idea – and build momentum to solve problems that matter.
