Networking for the social entrepreneur

Jeff Chu at FastCompany writes about Kjerstin Erickson, a young social entrepreneur and her experience in building her company FORGE.

Erickson is a social entrepreneur–just 25, she founded and heads a group called FORGE, which encourages entrepreneurship among African refugees–and she has spent this week at the Skoll World Forum in Oxford. It’s her first major conference, packed with the titans of her industry, and she’s here to court donors, make connections, and seek out journalists.

Reading this I realize that I will need to do more networking if I want to take Adelaide Green Drinks to the next level. And in fact I may have to change its format!
