6th FBN Social Entrepreneurship Day


The Social Entrepreneurship Day is a powerful, interesting & positive way to learn about intergenerational responsibilities and entrepreneurial action as well as its impact on society and the environment.

Now in its sixth year, the Summit’s Social Entrepreneurship Day offers family business members an experiential way to understand the positive impact business entrepreneurship and catalytic investments can have on the world’s most pressing social problems.

The Aim of the Day

The Social Entrepreneurship Day brings together some of Brazil’s leading agents of positive social change. They will share and discuss how their dedication to social entrepreneurship, impact investments, and catalytic philanthropy turns the world into a better place by having found unique entrepreneurial solutions to our world’s problems. The family business and family office participants will be inspired about how they can engage in philanthropy, social entrepreneurship and hybrid value chain activities – be it as a family or individually. The goal for the participants is to understand what it takes to be true Leaders in the 21st Century achieving 360 degrees of positive impact through entrepreneurial commitment and offering opportunities to their respective communities !

“The principal goal of education is to create women and men who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.” Jean Piaget

Throughout the day’s program, FBN International is again benefiting from its long-term partnership with Ashoka since the organization is bringing its top leadership team as well as three of Brazil’s (and the world’s) most outstanding social entrepreneurs; namely Rodrigo Baggio who is tackling the digital divide around the globe; Vera Cordeiro, focusing on improving child/family healthcare within underprivileged communities; and Alice Freitas who is building direct- sales opportunities for women artisans in Brazil.

After an interactive lunch, the lively and informal discussion turns to impact investing, with Vox Capital’s Antonio Ermírio de Moraes Neto, an entrepreneur from a family business background. Antonio co-founded Brazil’s first social venture capital fund that invests in innovative, high-potential businesses that serve low-income clients and whose activities contribute to reducing poverty. We will close the day with a guided discussion about how to build capacity amongst next-generation members in philanthropy with the help of the Instituto Geração, co-founded and led by Tatiana Piva de Albuquerque Sartori. Stefan Dyo Nishimura will assist in this discussion by sharing his philanthropy and social entrepreneurship experiences.
