Growing Social Enterprises in the Balkans: A Goodbiz Interview with NESsT

After years in the finance sector, Irina Asaftei realized that she wanted to go beyond her focus on generating profit. She joined NESsT after working in Romania, Uganda, Singapore, the Philippines and the UK, specializing in project design and management, organization development, capacity building, and communications for NGOs tackling a wide array of social issues.

Goodbiz hosted Irina from NESsT Romania at their introductory event "Community for Better Investment" in March 2017. Check out her interview on what makes the NESsT methodology stand out, how enterprise founders without business training are able to run their own businesses and thrive, and how NESsT decides what issues to invest in. Plus, she shares her insight on how projects like this can evolve across Europe in markets like Slovenia.
