Innovators Can Laugh
Madalina Bouros is a social entrepreneur and the co-founder and president of Allgrow, a global startup organization dedicated to generating a social impact and fostering systematic change. In this conversation, Madalina discussed her journey from becoming an NGO volunteer in countries like Egypt, Mexico, Turkey, and Suriname to creating an organization which builds ecosystems for people to exchange knowledge through tools such as Change Architects - which works with children and teachers to create curriculums based on design thinking - as well as working with businesses to transfer knowledge from the business sector into the educational sector.
We discuss several interesting projects such as:
her three-year experience in Haiti (2012-2016), where she created a space for local kids (ages 12-14) to come together and think about how they could make a change in their community.
implementing a women empowerment program called micro consignment which provided solar lights, water filters and other products to women in their home communities without requiring an initial investment.
