Building a Social Enterprise – Talk by Timothy Straight
6 May 2019 - yerevan

“Finding a market for an Armenian product is not the the main challenge, legal and logistical matters are.” Founder of the social enterprise Homeland Development Initiative Foundation – HDIF and the Honorary Consul of Norway and Finland in Armenia Tim Straight met with our community to share his experience of founding and running a social enterprise in Armenia. HDIF wasn’t built overnight – Tim and his team have gone through years of “trial and error” and a lot of ups and downs before finding their way toward sustainability and growth. In his words: “My belief in our mission and the social impact we are making in Armenia is what continues pushing me forward through all the hardships along the way.” We are so lucky to have Tim’s guidance and mentorship for our budding entrepreneurs.
