The Wellness Couch & Megan Louise Wright, Social Innovation Network

May 30, 2019

Megan is a passionate Sociotech Entrepreneur, Association President, Consultant, Facilitator, and Speaker, on a mission to stimulate and nurture a global social innovation movement.

Megan is the co-founder and COO of Impactful Ventures, a purpose-driven consultancy focused on the role of data, Artificial intelligence and measurement in social impact. In the past, Megan has played soccer on a scholarship in the USA, worked in the UK and spent time volunteering in Asia, before diving deep into social entrepreneurship.

Megan has also spent several years researching & developing social-impact tech startups with specific interest and focus on harnessing emerging technologies (such as VR, AR & AI) for humanitarian aid and the mobilisation of human capital.

As the Founder and President of the Social Innovation Network, Megan saw that there was a gap in the market for the support of social entrepreneurs in growing and developing their business ventures, as well as a platform to educate the general public about the innovative approaches towards solving complex global problems through entrepreneurship. The network creates the opportunity for high profile influencers such as impact investors, successful CEO's and members of government to share their insights at monthly events.

We'll chat with Megan, the pressures she has felt nurturing a global social innovation movement, her incredible adventures and experiences on her pathway and her triumphant success over her experience of adrenal fatigue and how she transformed her experience into a positive by creating a resource channel for others to be educated.
