Hey Change Nation, we are back with our series featuring the ‘Best of SCN’! This series is focused on taking you back to some of our early days in podcasting and sharing the inspiring and challenging stories of our early entrepreneurs! This week we are featuring an entrepreneur whose social business model actually provides the gift of clear sight to those with vision impairments! Founder of Panda Sunglasses, Vincent Ko, speaks about the start of his social venture and how it is impacting the sight of the world! Panda Sunglasses creates unique, hand-crafted sunglasses that then provide medical eye exams and prescription glasses to the vision impaired through the buy-one give-one model! Vincent also introduces us to an eye-opening quote that can inspire any entrepreneur to accomplish their goal of a social venture business model. Check out more of his story and the impact of Panda Sunglasses in the podcast!
