On Friday, the Social Economy Initiative (SEI) presented its Second Annual Homecoming Keynote event in the Bronfman Building. The event featured presentations from five social entrepreneurships including Aspire– the 2013 Hult Prize winning team, as well as four past winners of the McGill Dobson Cup. Each team elaborated on their companies and the ways in which their work has had an impact.

Just three months after graduating this year from the University of Waterloo, Jonathan Rivard’s startup company had generated $130,000 in revenue.

Indianapolis turned out to be a great venue with lots of good programming and some very memorable events. I especially enjoyed the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture by Dr. Marin Burke entitled “Making molecular prosthetics with a small molecule synthesizer,” and the address by Alan Alda.

Scott Weatherhead, an MBA student at McGill University in Canada and the Social Economy Initiative's impact intern, travels through North Korea and South Africa in search of a use for his theoretical knowledge.
MBA students are preoccupied with doing well. We pull all-nighters for the highest marks, to land the best internships, to get the biggest salary upon graduation. Rarely do we take enough time to assess the impact of our actions. Yes, working harder may raise our marks but, beyond that, what is it all for?
