About this event

We live in an era of climate crises, polarized societies and failed leadership.

Today, more than ever before, the burden of positive change is on the shoulders of entrepreneurs.

Welcome to our fireside chat with Tomas Björkman, the founder of Ekskäret Foundation, a Swedish non-profit organization at the forefront of co-creating a conscious and sustainable society.

Discover how personal inner development and societal growth intersect, and learn how you can play an active role in shaping a better future for generations to come.

In this fireside chat we are discussing

⭐️ As someone with a background in business and investment banking, what inspired Tomas to become a social entrepreneur?

⭐️ What are the complex issues of our time that Tomas is passionate about solving?

⭐️ Why, even though millions of people are already putting their efforts towards a better world, are we failing to create collective outcomes at the pace that's necessary?

⭐️ How are life-long personal inner development and growth and societal development connected to each other?

⭐️ What is the mission of Ekskäret Foundation and how does it give momentum to change?

⭐️ How do Perspectiva, Co-creation Loft, Emerge, 29k.org and IDGs framework complement each other in the pursuit of societal transformation?

⭐️ What are the frustrations and rewards of building social ventures - how do you maintain focus on your goals?

⭐️ Tomas has authored three books - The Market Myth (2016), The Nordic Secret (together with Lene Rachel Andersen, 2017) and The World We Create (2019). How have these writings contributed to shaping the change discourse?

⭐️ What are some guidelines from Tomas for today's entrepreneurs for creating social impact ventures?

⭐️ How to partner up with Ekskäret Foundation?

The discussion will be moderated by Naimul Abd - Regional Director Nordics at Startup Grind.
