#Thomas (Chief Empathy Officer): Bachelor degree in Economics and Master in Social Entrepreneurship. I am passionate about creating engagement in communities. I believe that the source of happiness lies in the connections and compassion you can build with your peers. In this regard I have worked in Belgium as a scout chief for 6 years, developed a business in Istanbul and traveled with Muhammad Yunus in Uganda. I am excited to start a business in the bay area and meet as many passionate changemakers as I can! #Magali (Chief Impact Officer): My passion has always been social enterprise, and just finished my Master’s in Social Entrepreneurship. I have been a part of the Enactus UK Network for 6 years where I was a part of building a social enterprise in India. My passion lies behind the ‘So What’ of our impact and understanding how we can create inclusive models to social change. I’ve always loved running and just finished the San Francisco half marathon last month! #Olivier (Chief Ideation Officer): I have 11 years of business experience in the financial industry, mainly in Corporate Social Responsibility. I helped to build up the Swiss Re Foundation and have led the establishment of a social business venture in Cambodia. After spending so many years in a global multi-billion corporation, I wanted to see what the other side of the spectrum looks like. My Bachelor Degree is in Business Administration.
