The 2nd day of YGL (Young Global leaders) meet presented different shades of entrepreneurship. The one session which really impressed me was "Dance 4 life". I'll come to that later.
Earlier in the day, Mr. Henrik Naujoks (Director, Bain & company) talked about an extension of "Philanthropy" in his topic, "Managing Social Change". He comprehensively detailed us about Principles of sustained social value creation.
In the 2nd session, what I experienced was how cool, carefree and modest, a person can be when Mr. Yair Goldfinger (Co-founder & chief technology officer, DOTOMI) took over the stage. He was simply amazing, of the fact, that he started of by saying "I am having no presentation with me as I am highly disorganized". I immediately related to him as I am the same. But I knew that this person will not boast of a crisp suiting and shirting, but of a crisp mind & practicality. And there he was, engrossing us with his inspiring life story and briefing us with changing digital media. The learning from this session was highly personalized. Whether one needs to expose one's personal details open to the world in order to get personalized services or sit in privacy and follow what the world is doing. Interesting session I must say.
Last but not the least, as I mentioned earlier, "Dance 4 life". The session actually made me tap my feet in rhythm when Mr. Dennis Karpes (Founder, Dance 4 life), through his really glossy and different presentation, briefed us about this dream project. It works towards spreading awareness on HIV through the medium of dance. It was fascinating to see such a brilliant concept on a global level which educates the teenagers worldwide about this serious issue in an entertaining and lively way. The optimism of Mr. Karpes was clear in his choice of words when he told us why he named the project "Dance 4 life" instead of "Dance against HIV". I must say that, in this YGL meet, my knowledge horizons are expanding, not in a way I learn, but the way I think. I am sure it'll continue in the next 3 days.
Prof. Christopher Jahns, today, opened the 1st YGL Curriculum. He told us about the World Economic Forum and the Young Global Leaders. Moreover he introduced all the promising keynote speakers for the next five days. I think it was a good choice to apply for the 1st YGL Curriculum, having the chance to meet all those astonishing people with their great ideas.
The first of them was Felicitas von Peter who came right after our president. Her topic was "New Philanthropy", a topic that was not quite new to the most of us, as Yunus has already emphasized it when he visited Wiesbaden and also when he came to EBS to open up the Chair of Social Business. But I think one cannot mention it often enough: Every dollar donated is gone, but every dollar invested into a social business generates new dollars that can be reinvested. This thought fascinated her so much, that she founded her own social business called "Active Philantrophy" to promote the idea of such businesses that are not depending on grants and charity but on sustainable business models. Moreover she was reporting about some really cool companies she is working with.
Altogether a great start, I am looking forward to get to know more YGLs!
