Lord Andrew Mawson is one of the foremost social entrepreneurs in the UK and we’re delighted to welcome him to Cambridge. He will be talking about business that benefits the community, especially in an era where a lot of public funding is no longer available.

Lord Mawson is passionate about social entrepreneurship: “We often can’t see what is right in front of our noses. When Tesco arrived in Bromley-by-Bow, East London, shortly after I had arrived as a young Minister in the neighbourhood some thirty years ago, many didn’t see the benefits of entrepreneurial partnerships even though we had 39% unemployment at the time and a real need for work opportunity. My passion to make a lasting difference began with local people and their stories, and not with policies, statistics and theory.

I began building my sense of place by walking the streets, visiting the markets, the schools, and the businesses, to understand what was happening in our community to keep it from fulfilling its potential.
