Mother Theresa once said of herself, that “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” The same applies to our startups. Many of us dream of disruptive innovations that can change the world. We want to be the next Steve Jobs who changed the world with smartphones and sleek designs; Larry Page / Eric Schmidt who redefined the search engine experience; or Elon Musk who tried to save the environment through the coolest car technology.
Besides creating the best disruptive innovations, how about amplifying the effect of your startup by tapping on to the community around you? Just like what Mother Theresa said, you can cast a big stone with your startup, but you can create ripples (or waves) by engaging the community in your quest to make a difference.
Join us to learn about how we can hack our startups socially, at our next meetup on 30th April, where Tatyana Kanzaveli will be speaking specifically on how to create these ripples! Sign up now to reserve a seat!
