What motivates some of the region’s leading social entrepreneurs? How do they lead their teams? And what’s the best way to build a sustainable business model?

We had so many burning questions for the winners of this year’s Gen.T x Credit Suisse Social Impact Awards that we couldn’t choose between them. So we decided to ask them all—really, really fast. 

Produced in partnership with Credit Suisse, the Social Impact Awards recognise Gen.T honourees who are using technology to create social impact at scale. 

For the Social Impact Quickfire, we partnered two awardees from similar fields, shooting off dozens of rapid-fire questions about their company, their why and the impact they make.
