Welcome to the first Global Ideas Lab event for 2018: Entrepreneurship in Global Health.

How might we achieve large scale, systemic and long-term social change, using a sustainable business model? How might we co-design solutions to social, cultural and environmental issues? This Global Ideas Lab will focus on bringing ideas into action. Our wonderful panel of social entrepreneurs provide excellent examples of creating innovative solutions to some of the issues outline in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

This lab will explore the work of social entrepreneurs and the organisations they have founded or work for:

Matt Teluk – Founder, Monochrome Coffee (http://monochromecoffee.co/) and Associate at PwC Skills for Australia
Chris Kommatas – Founder and Managing Director of Melbourne-based healthtech innovation advisory company, Amplify Health (https://amplifyhealth.com/)
Jaafar Alz – Director of Key Program at Happy Brain Education (http://happybrain.org.au/)

We will hear about what inspires them, their approach to problem-solving, and their advice for passionate and driven future leaders in global health. This Global Ideas Lab will provide a unique, value-packed opportunity in a simple form:

  • Panelist speak about their ventures, and how they managed to develop a business that is beneficial for a healthy community;
  • Participants then break into groups, reflecting on how they can apply these lessons and ideas to their own platforms.

This lab is solution based and aims to inspire and energise its participants! Come and get involved!
