Hello world, and welcome to Lunagals: Adventures in Social Entrepreneurship!
Way back (as in the early 90s!) when we started our business, our focus was on making and selling products that make a difference in the world: we didn’t call it social/mission/impact etc yet – we were just entrepreneurs trying to build a successful values-based business.
As the years went by, we tried out all kinds of ideas, raised money,took chances, launched products and multiple websites, hustled at craft fairs and trade shows, started our families, and generally made it up as we went along. It was and remains busy, fun, stressful, creative, fascinating and highly rewarding. To us, this path is about as awesome as it gets: earning a living, creating employment for others, doing something that we believe in and making a difference
A few years ago, we started to notice that people like us had a name: social entrepreneurs. We also started receiving a growing stream of requests for interviews, speaking gigs, mentoring and brain picking sessions from aspiring entrepreneurs and changemakers. We love to share our story and encourage others, but it was becoming exhausting re-sending the same links and answering the same questions over and over again.
This site is basically all of it: personal and business stories, videos, blog posts, media articles and more. Want the real scoop on what 40+ years of trying to change the world through business looks like? Here you go!
Oh and hey: if you want to go deeper, let us know. All funds raised via our consultation sessions go towards funding United Girls of the World, a registered non-profit society that supports girls empowerment around the world.
With best wishes for your success,
PS: Let us know what you think about the site and ask questions.
