You don't need to save the world, You do need to make a difference

You don't need to save the world, You do need to make a difference

On Tuesday 26th March 2019 evening, we had Hao Teo, the founder of iDibs, gave an insightful talk about EASE (Evolution of a social enterprise). A social enterprise has adapted and changed into different models over the past decades. Hao has provided us with the conventional model of a social enterprise which relied heavily on rich donors or large contributors. He talked about the new different models which are sustainable in nature.

         

         

Hao discussed the business model where social enterprises are moving to a balance between sustainable financially and developing social good in Australia or the world.
He also talked about his business, idibs. iDibs helps internationals to find services they require in an environment of Accountability of services providers, convenience and trust. Being a social enterprise too, he also explained the financial sustainability of the business model and how it brings value to internationals in Australia.

Hao finished off with a positive note on working with Rotary and how iDibs can work with Rotary to introduce volunteering to Internationals and benefit both ecosystems with a cultural exchange and social good.

We like to acknowledge the iDibs team who came:

  • iDibs
    • Hao Teo (Guest Speaker)
    • Linhan Li
    • Angie Duong Thao Nguyen
    • Alwy Christyo
