“An idea is like a play. It needs a good producer and a good promoter even if it is a masterpiece. Otherwise the play may never open; or it may open but, for a lack of an audience, close after a week. Similarly, an idea will not move from the fringes to the mainstream simply because it is good; it must be skillfully marketed before it will actually shift people's perceptions and behavior.” 

 David Bornstein, How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas

As an impact entrepreneur, you encounter challenges to convince clients, investors, partners of the value of your business. Translating your vision into a business that creates both economic and social value is your purpose, but how do you proceed, how should you communicate, and who can support you?

 The EYnovation & EY Climate Change and Sustainability Services teams join forces to support you in turning your ideas into means of creating shared value: both economic and social impact. The expertise of the EY team in entrepreneurship and sustainability management will enable you to propel your project to the next level.
