15 Years: 15 Lessons in Social Entrepreneurship

  1. 1. r
  2. 2. Talk about your project with as many people as possible, as often as possible. It helps refine your thinking and better communicate your goals and approach.
  3. 3. Connections, connections, connections! Strong collaborations, determined team members, and supportive faculty members are a great boon in building an effective team, which will aid in the success of your idea.
  4. 4. Don't be afraid to fail early and often. This is how you learn, develop, and grow.
  5. 5. Do things the right way the first time! Make sure to have the legal framework to protect you and your company or idea.
  6. 6. Think long-term. Build a company that will be as meaningful to you in five years as it is to you today.  
  7. 7. Let other people make mistakes, even if you think you could have done it better. In a team setting, it's important to give other team members the opportunity to try out their ideas, even if they don't turn out as expected.
  8. 8. Bring up team problems quickly. Regularly sharing feedback with each other and discussing your biggest concerns may create momentary tension, but it keeps things running smoothly in the long run.
  9. 9. Micro-management is inefficient. Working on a project with so many moving parts makes you realize you can't control everything. You need to build a team and delegate.
  10. 10. Spend a lot of time personally getting to know the people you’re trying to benefit. Without their approval and support, it would be very difficult to make a long-term positive impact in their lives. 
  11. 11. You can't be everywhere at the same time. Decide where you are most effective, and after that be satisfied that you are making the best use of your time and energy. 
  12. 12. Be kind to yourself so you can be generous with others. You need to be in a good mental state to be able to make an impact and assist others.
  13. 13. Be patient and flexible, but persistent. When you’re trying to make big changes or are working in an unfamiliar context, things will move and change slowly. This will give you an opportunity to be more reflective, effective, and capable in the long run.
  14. 14. Make sure to get buy-in and input from all key stakeholders. Listen to criticisms and be open to learning from others.

  15. 15. Manage expectations. Be honest about challenges or delays.
  16. 16. Show your incomplete work to potential investors. Show your incomplete and early work to potential investors so they can see your progress.
