March 8, 2022: Investors Meet Up

March 8, 2022: Investors Meet Up

Net4kids, together with companies, helps children who hardly get opportunities based on the vision that social involvement is an integral part of entrepreneurship. Net4kids is therefore convinced that the companies that understand and apply this are more successful.

During our Investors Meet Up we bring the investors of Net4kids together to meet and exchange experiences about social involvement within their company. We will share best practices and success stories of our investors and discuss ideas for the future. We also want to show you that there are many options for involving your employees in the CSR policy. The main goal of this afternoon will be: meet like-minded entrepreneurs and go home with a lot of new ideas and insights on how to develop your organization in the desired direction.

What can you expect?

On the stage: inspiring practical examples. Marlon Brand, Improved Corporate Finance talks about how he and his colleagues help Ghanaian young people on their way to a successful career. Thanks to Google expert Emile van de Klok, these Ghanaian youngsters are being trained to become digital marketers. In addition, two entrepreneurs and networkers pur sang, Rex Vermeulen and Paul Joosten, on stage. They talk about how they mobilize their own network to make an entire village in Tanzania self-reliant.

Next to the stage: every company and every entrepreneur in our network makes an impact. Inspire each other about the ways in which you can do social entrepreneurship, how you involve your employees in your project and how you can strengthen each other to ultimately help many more children.

This meet up was organized for the first time in 2020. Do you want to know more about it and/or register for this second edition on March 8, 2022? Please contact Anne-Marijn: annemarijn.bentum@net4kids.org. Until then?

Starter package CSR workshop

Starter package CSR workshop

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is becoming increasingly important. The government, consumers and social organizations expect companies to take their social responsibility. Do you still have to be convinced that your company cannot grow without internal and external involvement? How do you start with this?

Where do you start as an organization?

This workshop is for entrepreneurs who want to grow and realize that further growth is not possible without internal and external involvement.

  • Social entrepreneurship and social involvement, what can that do for your staff and organization? What can it contribute to turnover, effort, absenteeism and productivity? To what extent does this contribute to business growth?
  • Do you get all vacancies filled? What determines whether a candidate in the current market chooses you? What moves millennials? Why on earth would a good candidate choose your company when there are so many other options?
  • How distinctive is it to the market and your customers when you say that you don't work irresponsibly, so no child labor, no fraud, no exploitation, no environmental damage, are you proud, is that your brand, your identity? Research shows that more than half of consumers believe that brands should actively commit to stimulating positive changes in the world. What about your image / brand value: are you really sufficiently distinctive and meaningful?

The workshop is given by Mario Huibers, Net4kids ambassador who works every day in his own field to make organizations perform better through internal and external involvement.

Social entrepreneurship is just like commercial entrepreneurship; delivering solutions to customers and thereby creating a revenue model. However, someone who does business in a social way creates added value for society, which Net4kids invariably refers to as 'impact', and we fully support this.
