News, happenings and goings on from the Old Fire Station, Oxford
My friend Paul Hodgkin who is a GP and runs a social enterprise called Patient Opinion (worth a look) told me I should go to Oxford Jam which is a fringe to the Skoll World Forum. I called in briefly and met a pile of social entrepreneurs talking about ways of linking money to meaning. It seems to me that old fire station is the prime example of the challenge of bringing together people who can do meaning with people who can do money. Social entrepreneurs are that rare breed that can do both. I’m learning very fast but thanks to a few chance connnections, I’m now working hard to see if we can attract investment from people with money who can see the potential for OFS to turn uncertainty into opportunity. Thanks for the introductions, Paul.
