Making possible the impossible through social entrepreneurship

About

Hi everyone and welcome!

 

My name is Carolina and I am a 29-year-old social entrepreneur and consultant from Colombia.

 

It all started in 2013. I was studying my Masters’ Degree at the London School of Economics (LSE) when along a group of friends I cofounded Agruppa, one of the most renown social and technological startups in Latin America for its impact shortening the fruit and vegetable supply chain between the farm and the city.

 

Thanks to Agruppa’s impact in the lives of 150,000 people (mom-and-pop shops, farmers, transportation contractors, and end customers), I received different awards, like Innovator Under 35 and Humanitarian of the Year 2017 from MIT.

This page is dedicated to my experience and lessons learned as an entrepreneur and consultant, and to my mission and vision of a more equitable world through entrepreneurship. I hope this it useful and to hear from all of you soon!

 

My mission is to support and motivate entrepreneurs and organizations to innovate together in order to fight the most pressing challenges we face as humanity, and that often seem impossible to solve; to work together to make the impossible possible through social entrepreneurship.
