The Big Reset: Social Innovation in Times of Change

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, our systems are being shaken to the core. Around the world, the network of social entrepreneurs, supported by Reach for Change, is responding – adapting their innovations and business models in order to continue solving some of the most pressing social issues we face.

Re-watch the online discussion with the team of Reach for Change Bulgaria and two of their Change Leaders – Knigovishte (Книговище) and Locker Room Talk to get inspired by the stories of social innovation and digital transformation, and the lessons learned along the way.

Reach for Change is an international non-profit which empowers social entrepreneurs to develop and scale innovative solutions that improve the lives of children and youth. They have supported over 1000 Change Leaders in Europe, Asia, and Africa through capacity-building, network connections, and funding, all in partnership with multiple sectors. Reach for Change has been operating in Bulgaria since 2014, organizing the contest PROMYANATA together with Nova Broadcasting Group.

The event was part of the online conference The Big Reset: From a Crisis Mode To Entrepreneurial Mindset, organized by Trending Topics SEE. The main question of the conference was: could the current crisis be an opportunity for development? For four days, entrepreneurs, leaders, experts, community builders, and policy-makers will discuss and explore opportunities in various digital formats.
