“Every man is guilty of all the good he didn’t do”

Voltaire

If you decide to follow me in this Twitter account, I will make sure I introduce you to this new and exciting field of social innovation. We will analyze how social entrepreneurs are finding innovative and sustainable ways of addressing the most pressing social issues. At times, It seems hard to believe that anything social can be enterprising, or that one can combine business methods and social sensitivity at the same time. This convergence of opposites in the oxymoron “social entrepreneurship” is the good news I wish to share with you.

In my professional career, I have managed to develop a personal trajectory which combines aspects which apparently do not blend easily: anthropology and management, theory and knowledge from practice, experience with both public and private actors, in the for-profit and the NGO sector, and a personal stance in favour of efficiency while at the same time remaining close to real social issues. I believe this “reconciliation of opposites” shows itself in my career. Once you are able to see and understand the boundaries that characterize these sectors, there are no longer such boundaries, and you have pushed them further.            As Margaret Mead said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful ‘Twitter followers’ can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
