The world's biggest online event for social entrepreneurship is on right now

Hi everyone,

At StartSomeGood we have been very hard at work organising our fourth annual #StartingGood Virtual Summit, which has just begun. It couldn’t be more timely or relevant in the current environment as a way for us to come together, share stories of impact and stay inspired about what’s possible out the other side of COVID.

I wanted to make sure you were aware it was on and to invite you to check it out.

The #StartingGood Virtual Summit is the world’s largest online event for early-stage and aspiring social entrepreneurs. It features over 40 successful founders and social impact leaders from ten countries, sharing what they’ve learned along their changemaker journey in order to fuel yours. This year we’re aiming for and well on the way towards 10,000 participants.

Speakers include Jacqueline Novogratz, the founder of Acumen Fund ($115M USD invested), Jeffrey Hollender, co-founder and former CEO of Seventh Generation (sold to Unilever for $700M USD in 2016), Fritzi Horstman, Grammy Award-winning producer and founder of the Compassion Prison Project (USA), Rob Caslick, Founder and CEO of Two Good Co (Australia), Sara Ecklund, founder of The Noble Cup (Ethiopia), Dr. Astrid Scholz, Co-founder of Zebras Unite and Founder of Sphaera (USA) and so, so many other legends and leaders in social impact. There are interviews, presentations, panels, practical workshops, meditation, music and even a dance workshop and speed networking happening over the next seven days.

It’s completely free to access this content but you only have until May 27 so sign up now at!

Please also share this with your community and anyone who could use some extra inspiration, insights and skills to make a difference - which is all of us really, especially right now.

We had a wonderful start of the #StartingGood Virtual Summit with sessions with Jacqueline Novogratz, Weh Yeoh, Co-Founder of Umbo, Founder of OIC Cambodia and Co-Founder of Happy Kids Clinic and Laura Thompson, leader of the #FreeTheFlag campaign and more.

It’s was a particular thrill for me to get to speak to Jacqueline Novogratz who has been such an important leader and innovator in the social enterprise sector for so long, with so many learnings to share with all of us.

We discussed the key dimensions of moral leadership; moral imagination, holding ideas in tension and listening.

She said she was “seeing a generation of changemakers pivot. And even as they go to heal and alleviate the immediate suffering in front of them, they are imagining the future that can be. This is at the essence of moral imagination, the humility to see the world as it is and the audacity to see the future that can be.”

So much wisdom in this, and in all her reflections.

I hope you’ll find it catalytic to your work.
