Description

FASTSTART brings to you FLEMING TALKS with Barbara Stegemann!

Top Game Changer CBC's Dragons' Den| CEO and Founder, The 7 Virtues

Barbara Stegemann’s entrepreneurial vision was formed after her best friend—a soldier—was severely wounded in Afghanistan. Understanding that supporting Afghanistan’s economy was key to building stability for its people, Stegemann created The 7 Virtues Beauty, a company that sources organic oils from countries experiencing turmoil (such as Afghanistan, Haiti the Middle East and Rwanda). Despite addressing complex global matters in her talks, Stegemann uses humour to explain how individuals can use business for good and effect change, both at home and worlds away.

Stegemann became known to millions of Canadians when she became the first woman from Atlantic Canada to land a venture-capital deal on the CBC TV show Dragons’ Den for The 7 Virtues Beauty. She went on to become the "Top Game Changer" in the history of the show for creating her social enterprise.

PREVIEW

Social Entrepreneurship is on the rise and more companies are now addressing not only the financial bottom-line but the TRIPLE BOTTOM-LINE Social, Environmental and Financial. Unlike traditional businesses, these companies are driven by a social or an environment preservation cause and putting these before profit to create a sustainable business model for the greater good. They are challenging the way corporations work with the community and the world.

Come and get inspired and be part of what the world needs the most, CHANGE!
