Meetup: How are startups changing the world?


Have you ever asked yourself how startups are making a difference in the world? Tom Nixon is an entrepreneur who, after founding Socially-minded consultancy in the UK, decided to focus on topics around freedom and democracy. He has given talks in the past about how start-ups can help us change the world.

Join us in this meetup and get to know first hand how entrepreneurs are becoming a real need for today’s society.


Tom Nixon is an ambassador for Worldblu, the organisation with a mission of seeing a billion people in the world working in freedom.How will they do this? By inspiring organisations to become democracies which leads to success in traditional financial performance and even more importantly a chance to improve the lives of people and make the world a better place. Start-up businesses have an incredible opportunity to be democratic right from the start to give them a huge edge in taking on monolithic dinosaurs whose industries they wish to disrupt. Tom, himself an entrepreneur having founded the social consultancy NixonMcInnes, will explain what organisational democracy is, how it will make your start-up kick ass and the steps you can take right away to make your start-up a democracy.
