Fulbright Brings Bright Young Minds to Portland for Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation

In this video, Rich Brueckner from inside-Startups sits down with Fulbright Foreign Students Amos Schkowsky and Eric Chua to learn more about their recent seminar on Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

The Fulbright program brought graduate students from over 70 countries to Portland to learn from its rich community of businesses and nonprofit organizations that emphasize sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental stewardship.

The seminar featured a panel discussion with three social entrepreneurs from Portland who discussed how their Startups are using business as a tool for social change.

Featured Startups:

  • My Street Grocery, a community mobile grocer with a mission to increase fresh food access for all.
  • EcoZoom makes clean cookstoves for developing countries, tackling the hugely unaddressed problem that 3 billion people worldwide do not have access to modern energy fuels.
  • Sustainable Harvest, an importer of high quality specialty-grade coffees that works with international growers to bring a reliable, traceable, and premium product to coffee roasters.
