JSIE, in association with Academy Hills Library, launched a new forum series “First Movers Forum” in 2017. We welcome globally-active first movers in various fields to participate as speakers/panelists and to share their trials, challenges and lessons.
We support individuals who have the courage to solve local/global challenges and to boldly move forward with actions on various fronts. By engaging in dialogue with inspiring individuals, we can gain insight into problem-solving, expand our realm of activities, and broaden our perspectives from local to regional and from regional to global. Prior to the First Movers Forum, JSIE had organized fora, featuring social entrepreneurs and sharing ideas as we support (social) entrepreneurs who try to solve various social and global challenges based on the viewpoint of making sustainable business model of social entrepreneurship. We provide networking opportunities to share and exchange ideas as well as practical hints to solve such social and global challenges. Here are major panelists whom had participated in our forum.
