Spunky Swedish Social Entrepreneurs

Some people set out to be entrepreneurs. Others stumble into the scene by accident. Very often though, the urge is spurred by the need to make a difference in the world we live in. On this episode of Enterprise, we explore the origin story of two social enterprises based in Sweden: ReStock, a social enterprise which uses mobile tech to optimise Kenya’s fresh produce value chain, and Dessaga, a social enterprise empowering women in developing regions through socially conscious handmade products.

Produced by: Majidah Hashim
