“Neetal has been a great resource for me as an aspiring social impact entrepreneur. Participating in Impactathon, I learned skills that have helped me grow as a social entrepreneur. Neetal guided us through the workshop and emphasized throughout that innovative change is possible. The experience led me to think outside the box in my own social ventures. To further grow my entrepreneurship skills I read Neetal’s book, “51 Questions on Social Entrepreneurship,” which gave me a deep understanding of the topic, with tips from starting up a business to policies that affect the sector. I found the book so helpful that I now use it as a resource when teaching social innovation courses at UCLA. My students find the information presented clear, immediately understandable, and a great reference manual for future use!”
“The Soka University Bridges to Business program was lifted by the spirit, brains, experience, passion and leadership of Neetal Parekh — both as a featured speaker/teacher and for her work organizing the Spring Break Impactathon…[including] the thoughtful structure, guidance [of Impactathon] and vast international network of willing advisors, who Skyped in from around the world to assist our students in this magical one-day event. I highly recommend this program and stellar leader to any organization.”
“I am planning to teach a new course on Impact Creation, Analysis and Evaluation for our MBA students at UCLA Anderson School. 51 Questions on Social Entrepreneurship by Parekh would be an excellent background reader for my class. It is an easy read, provides a lot of useful information on what is meant by social entrepreneurship and describes various organizational forms that can be used for social ventures. It is organized as answers to 51 questions but is presented as queries faced by three fictional social entrepreneurs who must understand the nuances to make relevant decisions.”
“Neetal’s rare expertise in business management and social impact is critical to the the future of sustainable business. As a fellow entrepreneur I’ve worked alongside Neetal for more than five years. In those five years, she has excelled at many things including: public speaking, social media marketing, consulting, and project management. She can address everything from the big picture to the details. Neetal is creative, passionate, solutions oriented and demonstrates outstanding communication skills.”
“At Lynn University, we are infusing social impact learning across all concentrations – we see changemaking as a unifying force, not a separate department. Neetal’s book and training programs are fundamental resources for clarifying what the social impact space is all about, understanding the legal frameworks and practical applications of conscious business, and the specific distinctions between social entrepreneurship and social innovation. As a facilitator Neetal offers a rare balance of technical expertise, working knowledge, and the kind of warmth and grace that puts students at ease.”
