    #Quickpods - Brin Enterkin

    Meet Brin
    During her sophomore year of college, Brin Enterkin started The African SOUP, an organization addressing the needs of 300 orphans in rural Uganda through a sustainable and replicable model. With a heart for social change, she then started Non-Profit Strategic Services, a small social business focused on grant writing and Nonprofit formation. In her spare time, Brin enjoys studying the concept of social businesses. After receiving foundational funding, she traveled to 8 countries on 3 continents to interview Ashoka Fellows and conduct research on the triple bottom line method. Brin graduated in May 2012 and immediately jet set off to Costa Rica to work for the Sullivan Foundation teaching and mentoring students on social innovation and entrepreneurship. Upon her return back to America, Brin took a one-year competitive fellowship position with the Woodruff Foundation. After hours, she is working to launch a social business venture located in rural Uganda. She also really loves coffee with friends and partaking in beautiful adventures.

    What we discuss
    Failure, legacy, tips to Brin's younger self, and productivity.

    #Quickpods - Elyse Burden

    Meet Elyse

    Elyse Burden is a member of the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for Education in 2018, and is the Co-Founder of Real World Scholars (RWS). RWS is a non-profit e-commerce platform that would allow any class to run a business right from their classroom with the funding, technology and support needed to make it a reality. Ten classes in 2015 grew to 250+ businesses in 34 states, ranging from K-12 and STEM to art. RWS was born out of a question I’ve been exploring myself: how can we better equip young people to be their best selves and become agents of change in their communities? Elyse is passionate about equity and elevating the voice, role, and contributions of young people as they do work that matters to them. I could not be more excited to explore her journey with you.
