Throwback on the first virtual Impact Job Fair for Entrepreneurs we hosted on June 9, 2022. Click HERE to watch the recording!
Replicating successful models for social and environmental impact has never been more important to solve our challenges. This is the reason why we hosted this Impact Job Fair, in partnership with Green Jobs Network (a 120,000-member online career platform).
Concretely speaking, this event featured presentations from leaders of social & environmental impact organizations that are looking for people who are interested in replicating their models in local communities worldwide.
It was a "call for entrepreneurs" who are ready to start their own enterprise based on an existing successful model.
There was also an opportunity for questions and answers after the presentations.
Who were the organizations?
