SPOTLIGHT: DAMILOLA AJAYI, CEO EVENTPRO FRUITIES
A Day to Remember:
"01/08/2015 taught me that challenges are inevitable on your way to the top and I got to realise that giving up cannot be an option. As I was setting up my fruit kebab tree at the event centre, half way done the tree fell and everything went amiss, people were already coming in, time wasn't waiting for me and I had to deliver. Sad, angry, with my fingers wobbling I had to provide a solution, the only solution was just to start all over again and that wasn't going be easy at all. I left the tree and told myself I'll make a refund to my client. Just on my way out, I remembered one of my set core values; No dissapointment! I wouldn't dissapoint any of my clients, so no giving up, no turning back. Immediately I rushed to set, tried it again and it turned a wonderful experience." - Damilola Ajayi, Social Entrepreneur
WHAT IS SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP?
"If social innovation is the process of finding new and creative ways to solve the world's most pressing problems, then social entrepreneurship is the product that brings those ideas into action. Social entrepreneurship applies entrepreneurial principles to solve difficult social and environmental challenges. It focuses on both creative solutions and long-term, sustainable change.
It is a social entreprenuer's belief that many of the world's problems can be changed through sustainable practices resulting in positive returns for society. Social entrepreneurship is most often associated with the nonprofit sector, but social entrepreneurs come from all walks of life as business professionals, educators, government officials, artists, poets, and students."
