Social Enterprise Showcase 2019

Middlesex University Dubai

 

 

This April I was invited once again to judge 5 social enterprise businesses at the Middlesex University Dubai. 

Many thanks to Shanthi Rajan, Sandra Stevenson, Suzannah Fernandes and Dr Michael Kloep and Dr Cody Paris for their hospitality.

It was a difficult decision as all the social enterprises were winners.

Congratulations to Pentagon and their initiative Mihriban for their concept and vision.

Apologies for not taking photos of the students but I didn't feel it would be appropriate to distract them while they were presenting.

Congratulations to all the social enterprises, YOU ARE ALL WINNERS!

Many thanks once again to the Middlesex University Dubai for providing me with the opportunity to share my fair trade journey and support all the gifted young social entrepreneurs.
