The state is bankrupt. The problems are great. Who will solve them? Social entrepreneurs show how entrepreneurship and self-initiative can help solve problems–such as Thorkil Sonne of Denmark who sees strengths where others see only deficits. Thorkil’s company, which specializes in software testing, has given more than 200 people with autism a place to work in recent years. There they can use their strengths such as attention to detail, high memory performance and pattern recognition. Or Katja Urbatsch from Germany whose organization with more than 4,000 honorary mentors throughout Germany supports young people to overcome cultural hurdles and be the first to study in their families.
