Our world has limited resources and we are now facing many social problems, such as climate change, energy poverty, gender equality, and social justice. We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. "Solving social problems with business strategy" is the key to sustainable corporations and cross-border cooperation for companies and startups.
Since 2016, UN has adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – as a common language for all sectors. In Taiwan, traditional corporations, startups, the government, and non-government institutions should propose innovative solutions to social problems, built on cross-border cooperation through SDG 17 global partnerships, and rethink the existing concept of business for all.
Based on years of expertise on Sustainable Development(SD), Plan b has invited key players from the startup ecosystem and corporations in Taiwan to share and exchange their very own perspectives on solving social problems with business strategy via international collaboration strategy to maximize joint value creation.
