Anna McGregor is the Australian National Manager of Pollinate Energy, a social enterprise that provides safe and affordable solar energy to India’s vulnerable slum communities.
Anna will be sharing the story of Pollinate Energy and their plans to grow and scale their operations further across India at the Social Traders Masters Conference.
Ahead of the conference, looking at the theme of ‘Realising the Future of Social Enterprise’, Anna has also shared 3 things she’d like to see for Australia’s social enterprise sector.
1. That Social Entrepreneurship triggers a much-needed evolution in business. Where all business activity holds social, environmental, and financial priorities, and every team includes motivated Intrapreneurs willing to keep their workplaces accountable.
2. Where Entrepreneurs & Social Entrepreneurs are one and the same. That is, every Entrepreneur plans, operates, and grows with the inclusion of social priorities
3. More collaboration. All sectors – public, corporate and social – need to open up and work and evolve together.
