On 27th October, Latha Sankaranarayan @Lats_tweets, the Ecopreneur and CEO of Developmatrix @developmatrix conducted a tweetchat on ‘Entrepreneurship and Sustainability’ as part of Safecity’s series on #RoadtoGES as we build up to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2018 which will take place in Hyderabad in November.
The chat began by questioning whether environmental and societal issues are relevant to an entrepreneur and what solutions entrepreneurs can bring forth to address the sustainable challenges. The chat also discussed whether social and environmental issues created new opportunities for entrepreneurs to work on. From the financial aspect, the audience spoke about the adequacy of impact investment and social venture funds to address challenges that they might face. Bringing sustainability into focus, people spoke about the challenges in embracing environmentally friendly practices in their work to address climate change. Bringing the chat to an end, the discussion revolved around whether entrepreneurship can help gender equality and women empowerment and if the government can help support entrepreneurs to address the sustainability challenges.
