This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Did you ever wanted to know what toilettes, fashion and teaching social business have in common?

Fionn Dobbin speaks about his journey from being a young wantrepreneur in the time of the Dot-com bubble end of the nineties in Berlin, becoming an industrial designer with the aim to fight against the lack of sanitation in the developing countries, a social business entrepreneur in the field of fashion and finally working as a teacher for design thinking and social entrepreneurship at the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga.

Despite of the diversity of the projects, all are based on the same concept, that all it needs to get people out of poverty is to create an enabling environment for them.

Fionn Dobbin is a lecturer and the Creative Industries & Entrepreneurship Program Director at the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga with a diploma in Industrial Design from the UdK Berlin Career College.
During his studies he has worked as a Innovation Team Designer for Adam Opel GmbH and as a Creative Director for the Latvian design company ZNAK.

After his diploma, a social business sanitation concept, he started working for the creative think tank and consultant company The Grameen Creative Lab of peace prize laureate Dr. Muhammad Yunus.

Fionn's core business as a freelance creative advisor is developing new ways and strategies in the fields of human interaction and communication within there environment.

Beside his main business as a lecturer at the SSE Riga and as a creative advisor, he is the founder and Creative Director of the social business fashion company MAMMU.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
