WEF Davos 2019: Day One Recap

Day one of the WEF Davos 2019 conference was a great success filled with many opportunities to connect and share ideas with inspiring people.  The event opened with a Meeting of the Schwab Social Entrepreneurs with Klaus and Hilde Schwab.

 

Some highlight quotes from the night:

“For economies like Asia, Africa, and Latin America, with some of the least developed populations in the world, economic inclusion, by definition, has to focus on women.” – Jacob Matthew 

“Many countries share globalized problems such as refugee crises, gender imbalance, or joblessness.” – Neelam Chhiber 

“The social entrepreneurs are my family” – Hilde Schwab
