Social Entrepreneurship Knows No Age with Stephen Ben

Who is an up-and-coming social entrepreneur that you have your eye on?  

Today, I am thrilled to be joined by Stephen Ben. Stephen is a Liberian-based social entrepreneur and the Founder & Executive Director at Wonder Liberia. Through Wonder Liberia, Stephen has created an education and health equity-focused non-profit that is working to assist the underserved communities in Liberia by creating educational programs and health campaigns.

Entrepreneurship doesn’t know age or experience. That’s the beauty of it - there is no one to tell you that you aren’t old enough or aren’t qualified. No matter the age or background of today’s social enterprise founders, they are changemakers we should all be championing. 

Tune in and listen to the sixteenth episode of Avant-garde Entrepreneur. You will hear how Stephen decided to stop waiting for the government to take action and launched his social enterprise, Wonder Liberia. Stephen talks about the challenges he has faced as a young entrepreneur, what his advice is for others just starting out,  what keeps him motivated to move forward, how he takes care of himself, and so much more.
