“My passion is to maximize the spread of innovative ideas. After working for many years as a social entrepreneur, a university professor and a international advisor to social innovators affiliated to Ashoka, I realized that the most effective way to reach a global audience is through mass media. Therefore I started APROPOS to inject social innovation into film, television and web entertainment.”
