“Happy Social Business Day to Ismail Chaib ! He is constantly looking for ways to connect new technologies with social issues. He kickstarted the social business movement in his homecountry Algeria and he created a startup there. Today he works on the project OpenBank in Berlin to get banks to be more transparent. I like : his open source philosophy + his algerian crazy dance moves + his ability to connect people :)"
Ismail perfectly represents the emerging generation of young social business activists. Naturally turned towards international experiences but very attached to his home country, over-connected and willing to make a difference, he has many projects at the same time to try to multiply his impact. Ismail is currently working on the Open Bank Project to promote greater transparency related to banks, he is also leading the MakeSense hotspot in Berlin, an open project that aims at connecting individuals to help social entrepreneurs solving their challenges.
Ultimately, Ismail is changing the image of IT people, developing ways to solve social issues thanks to new tech… He blogs about technologies, entrepreneurship and the Y generation… In short, everything about IT, except what can fix your PC ! : http://www.idontfixyourpc.com/ (blog in French)
HAPPY SOCIAL BUSINESS DAY 2012 !
