For Dennis Harte, he has spent the last 10 years building his company, the Tuk Tuk Factory, on out outskirts of Bangkok with the hopes to deliver electric Tuk Tuks to the market, and through this episdoe of Entrepreneurs For Good,I learn about his commitment to delivering on that vision.

If you are wondering why, and why the growth rates are likely to only continue to grow, then you should want my recent interview of Grace Han where we speak about her own transition to veganism, her work as an advocate for veganism, and why she thinks firms like Beyond and Memphis Meats are game changers.

Based in London, Grace regularly travels to China as part of her passion to support the vegan movement, and the organizations that are advocating for it.

A former meat eater herself, she provides a lot of interesting insights into the motivations for why the vegan lifestyle, and in this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, we talk through our shared belief that the new generation of plant based proteins are going to prove to bring a massive shift in the adoption of veganism.

Overcoming Limitations to Achieve Massive Social Impact | Jeff Rotmeyer, ImpactHK

In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good,, I speak with ImpactHK Founder Jeff Rotmeyer to talk about the work that he is doing with some of Hong Kong's most vulnerable populations.

It is an inspiring 20 minutes, with a lot of great insights into how Jeff started building a community of individuals who were taking simply actions to increase awareness and bring a little joy, to going where other organizations would not to bring "massive impact" and change lives.

It is a fun interview, and I'm happy to note that since the filming of this interview, he successfully raised a substantial amount of funding and is now taking ImpactHK to a whole different level.

About Jeff:
Two years ago he started writing a blog which slowly turned into a humanitarian movement.

Jeff started a group called impactHK which relies on the power of numbers to do great things for the less fortunate in Hong Kong. ImpactHK has raised tens of thousands of dollars for those living in caged homes, raised money to pay for a young girl’s cleft lip operation and donated to the homeless once a month for 20 straight months. Starting with only a few friends, impactHK now regularly moblizes 30-40 volunteers for each project and event.

ImpactHK is not only a beautiful thing for the relief that its provides to the less fortunate. It also brings an awareness to the general public and provides them with an opportunity to make real change.

Jeff also started a society called Love 21 Foundation, which is dedicated to bettering the lives of those living with Down syndrome and autism in Hong Kong, a community he has passionately worked with for over eight years.
