Tedx Salon: Social Entrepreneurship
On August 9th Tenzing Consulting Founder and Director, Bill Angeloni spoke to a group of well over 100 passionate participants at the TEDxSonomaCountySalon held at the Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, CA addressing the topic of Social Entrepreneurship.
In his presentation, Bill reflected on his experience as a "serial” entrepreneur, and how some of the lessons he’s learned applies to social entrepreneurship. In particular, defining an investment return, and how this can be challenging in the social space.
Earlier this year, Tenzing had the privilege of being part of a project funded by a philanthropist with two social passions, 1.) how to stop hunger in the United States and 2.) how to stop waste, in this case, food waste. The project allowed Tenzing to make our debut into social entrepreneurship. The project team developed and implemented a game-changing supply chain strategy for food banks to get more and healthier meals by distributing mixed produce.
The strategy, which went live in July, allows for receiving truckloads of bulk produce at a mixing center where it is broken into smaller portions more suitable for individual food banks. The food banks get greater variety and can produce healthier meals for their customers.
