Young Millennial Woman on a Mission; Defining Social Entrepreneurship


Jazzmine Raine

Who says you need a cushy office in a major corporation to change the world? Not Jazzmine Raine, a 26-year-old emboldened with a passion to make an impact by defining Social Entrepreneurship as the future of how to do business.

Jazzmine joins the BOLDtalks platform to discuss her unique journey in becoming a social entrepreneur, creating opportunities to use business as a way to create sustainable economic, social and environmental development. Learn the greatest challenges social entrepreneurs are facing, what it means to put people and the planet before profit, and actions you can take to support young social entrepreneurs on a mission to build a sustainable and socially just world.

Jazzmine is a social entrepreneur with a passion for responsible travel, conscious consumption, ethical fashion and social good.

At 18 years old, Jazzmine launched a non-profit organization called Raine for Water, which led her to travel the world learning the ins and outs of grassroots development and social innovation in Canada, Ghana and India. Before the age of 25, Jazzmine had the pleasure of working as the Operations Manager of a grassroots NGO in India, and Executive Director of a youth social justice nonprofit in Canada.

Jazzmine is the co-founder of North India's first zero waste guesthouse and tourism organization, 
Hara House. The social enterprise uses 20% of profits to empower youth through social justice and environmental action education. Hara House has received international funding and recognition, and was nominated for the Social Impact Award at the inaugural Bessie Awards hosted by the Women in Travel Summit taking place in May 2019.

Jazzmine was named one of 35 social entrepreneurs to watch for in 2019 by Causeartist. In her spare time, Jazzmine travels between Delhi and Bikaner developing content and strategy for nonprofits and purpose-driven enterprises.
