Laika Academy is hosting a Social Entrepreneurship for Development networking event and panel discussion this September and you're invited to join us for an evening of awesome chats, nibbles and inspiring ideas from world-class social entrepreneurs and designers working on the front line of innovative development across the Asia Pacific region.

Come along, be inspired and build your networks with change-makers who are shaping the way to a better world.
