Mirjam-The SocialEntrepreneurship Awards & the Schwab Foundation.m4v

I caught up with Mirjam Schöning at the WEF India summit at Mumbai this week. Mirjam heads the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship and has been involved in this space for 11 years.
Mirjam was here as a part of the 2011 Indian Social Entrepreneurship Award which was awarded to Neelam Chibber of Industree, Bangalore
Mirjam talks about whats happening in India on Social Entrepreneurship, how that compares to the world. She opines that the entire Social Entrepreneurship movement has evolved over time- one of the Entrepreneurs told her after a recent WEF China summit "I did not have to explain the term social Entrepreneurship even once at the event".
She also talks about her passion for Social Entrepreneurship and why she left her Bain Consulting job to do this.

Roger Hamilton I Like Your Article, I Want Share this quote with
"Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really.
Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success.
But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it,
So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that?s where you will find success."
