The NSYSU Hult Prize Club, which is assisted and supervised by the College of Management and the Office of Career Development, successfully held the first online event for this semester. On the 6th of October, an online lecture was provided by Ms. Yulin Tsai, founder of Seek and Find Co. Ltd., on the topic “Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship in Daily Life”. Through the lecture, Ms. Tsai introduced social enterprise and shared her own experience. She talked about the importance of ethics, social responsibility, and sustainability.
The lecture was divided into two parts. In the first part, Ms. Yulin Tsai talked about the origin of the social enterprise; which developed as a result of people’s desire which to make society better. The lecture involved the definition of a social enterprise and the difference between a non-profit organization (NPO), a social enterprise, and a general business. During the second part, Ms. Yulin Tsai shared the story of her founding Seek and Find Co. Ltd., which aims at promoting the symbiosis between job and family. She also talked about the huge difficulties for postpartum women to return to work which may discourage women from wanting to have children, risking the development of Taiwan.
During the Q&A session, participants asked numerous questions such as-How to improve the success rate of entrepreneurship? How to find business partners? What talents do you need to be a successful entrepreneur? Do the lecturers have more suggestions for youth entrepreneurship? Ms. Yulin Tsai also responded patiently one by one and provided students with a channel to learn more about entrepreneurial information, so that had a platform that can provide them with relevant information after the lecture.
During the event, Ms. Tsai said that it was a very beautiful thing to be able to communicate with the younger generation and share their hopes and actions for the society.
