Izzy Obeng joins Michael on Change Makers this week. As founding director of the award-winning social enterprise Foundervine, she leads a small team with a big mission – to change the global face of entrepreneurship. She launched Foundervine in 2018 to help young leaders from under-represented backgrounds direct their entrepreneurial energy to the right place, start-up and accelerate their ideas. It has since helped over 2,000 diverse, future leaders create, test and sustain entrepreneurial ventures globally. Here Izzy shares her experiences that drove her growing up in Tottenham, the importance of ensuring all communities have a voice, and why she believes business is the fastest route to social change.
