Hi Tom,
Thanks for sharing your insights! I would love to hear more about how you first started convening the monthly chat – particularly how you raised awareness and increased the adoption of the #SocEntChat hasthtag.

Hi Natalia,

Thanks for your comment! When I was developing the idea for #SocEntChat I spoke with a couple of key people in the sector such as Nathaniel Whittmore, social entrepreneurship blogger at Change.org. He provided some really valuable promotion when we launched the series which, along with our existing twitter followers and my personal network, helped get it up-and-running. And we've always made an effort to do individual outreach for each chat, inviting Ashoka Fellows and others with expertise in the monthly topic to ensure there's a good quality and depth of conversation.

Cheers!

Tom
