Marie Ringler is someone who is passionate about social entrepreneurship. As the founder of Ashoka in Austria and now the European Director of this globally active network, she knows the needs and hopes of the growing number of social entrepreneurs, i.e. those people who take an entrepreneurial approach to socially necessary improvements - entrepreneurs who measure their success first and foremost by their impact on positive change for society and not by profit and shareholder value.
As a member of the mentor panel in the TV programme "2 Minutes - 2 Mentors", she therefore contributes her first-hand expertise when young visionaries present their big ideas and look for supporters.
In my podcast, she talks about what's behind social entrepreneurship and why it's one of the most powerful levers to pull in this world. Changemakers take note!
