Social Impact and Business Growth used to be a separate agenda.

Years ago, I had the boring honor of being the oldest undergraduate student ever when I returned to college after 5 years of working on projects and ventures. One of the most interesting observation was to see so many young people interested in โ€œsocialโ€ everything โ€” social innovation, social enterprise, social investment, social impact. Whether itโ€™s through a zero-waste community challenge or a talk about racism and gender inequality, Iโ€™ve seen more younger people than ever who want to learn more about how they can contribute to making positive social and environmental changes. This wasnโ€™t just at my small businessโ€ฆ

StartingBloc: Tribe of Empathy on Steroids

Entering StartingBlocโ€ฆ

As Iโ€™m finally nearing the end of college life, this last semester has been as difficult as the first semester upon my return. Having come back to college at the age of 25 after 5 years of gap, I felt bored, lonely and anxious in school. Then, I slowly began to find connections between my learning and my future work, tried to open up myself for a wider network, and met several friends that I now consider as some of my closest friends. I stopped worrying about whether my return to college rather than dropping out was the right decisionโ€ฆ

When I told my friends that I was going to Amsterdam for this Thanksgiving break to attend a conference, they kept asking โ€œbut what are you really going to Amsterdam for?โ€ Well, while I admit that I definitely enjoyed the beautiful and fun aspects of the Netherlands, attending this summit was my favorite part of this trip. This is an event where over 800 entrepreneurs, professionals, and industry experts around the world pay $2,500 to learn, network, and get inspired about the future ofโ€ฆ

Hubspot, a global inbound marketing and sales platform company (proudly made in Boston), hosted its 1st Annual Inbound Sales Bootcamp. I decided to participate since I wanted to learn not only more about IT sales, but also how this event would be run from an education perspective. Iโ€™ve been to many hackathon/competition events but Iโ€™ve never been to a sales competition. Iโ€™d like to share how the event was run and what I learned from this great event.

This time, I was fortunate to attend โ€œIoT for Good: Connected, Inclusive, Smart Citiesโ€, a HubWeek event.

I have a passion for the three areas below. If you find any of the following resonating with your aspirations, you should have been at this event:

  • community development via social-impact-oriented real-estate projects
  • social impact through data and technology
  • profitable and equitable goods/services

Under the grand theme of developing and designing Internet of Things for good, the event was broken down into demo booths of social-impact-oriented initiatives and TED-style talks of speakers from varying organizations from Verizon, MBTA, Continuum, Supernormal, and our veryโ€ฆ

Facebook translation has left me some epic failures on my past writings(both ways) so I took more time to write in Korean and English.
