Business and common good


Business and common good is the title of the fourth episode of Fabrica About Future.

Never as in this historical phase, the world needs people capable of doing business by also aiming to solve a social problem, implementing lasting and significant changes, using resources and technologies to improve people’s quality of life.

But how is a company of this type created?
What models can be inspired by?

We talk about it on Thursday 15 April at 10.30am CEST with Luca Bazzoli, Ecosystem Manager of Ashoka Italia, a network that has been identifying, supporting and training social entrepreneurs for 40 years, offering them tools and resources to find innovative solutions to complex contemporary problems, and with Francesco Inguscio, Founder and CEO of Rainmakers, an organization born with the aim of helping startups specialized in meaningful innovation to grow, and of Chi Odia Paga, a legal tech company that fights online hate.

The conversation, free and in Italian, is led by Massimiliano Ventimiglia, Fabrica’s Program Director, and broadcast live on Zoom.
