Here is Something You Should See…


This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. How can we solve the world’s problems? We can start with social enterprises…and maybe earn some money, too. Marquis Cabrera shares what the most successful social enterprises have in common.

Marquis Cabrera is the founder and chairman of Foster Skills, an award winning social enterprise dedicated to empowering foster children to become successful, productive citizens. The success of Foster Skills and the numerous awards Cabrera has since won–including the Boston Globe’s Massachusetts Innovator of the Year, and Microsoft’s YouthSpark Change-Maker award–has led Cabrera to become a highly sought consultant for those wishing to found successful social enterprises.

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)

  1. I need advice (help) it be a great investment if you time energy,,it applys world wide ,so has potential of being huge…ITS BETTER THAN OBOMAS STIUMUS PACKAGE ..SERIOUSLY. TIPCHANGE building a NEW EARTH. Tip touch reach Invision CHANGE IF millions reach for something causes such a momentum ,haters need to call in support

  2. The power of a tragic life story that turns into doing good in the world is very common theme in those starting social enterprises. The key to success lies in the alignment with purpose, the monetization model and capturing the hearts of the target audience.

  3. this talk deserves a better title for more view like "my 2 dead moms and 2 dead dads made me change the lives of millions"or … "how dead parents helped me succeed in life"" great talk btw this man deserves a medal

  4. thank you for this, i am interested in social entrepreneurship and i was looking around to learn more about it, and this talk has inspired me to look into working with foster kids as well.

  5. Thank you for sharing your personal story! Thank you for giving a frame of reference and a guide for creating a social enterprise. Now I just have to find your BIB method and follow it! 🙂 Much continued success to you Marquis!

  6. Loving the concept of Social Enterprise (SE) and I will use his BIB methodology to share it in my toastmaster club tomorrow inshallah 😀 but if i had to share an insight i learnt from Marquis Cabrera is this " Life is too short to bulid things that don't matter" 
    1) Find a problem to solve ( Just ask What & Why) to bulid your Business Model
    2) Create an impact ( just ask what value are you creting and how much ? 
    3) Build your brand with supportive Network and superstars to make it happen

    There is 860,000 Seconds in a day. What are you going to do about it ?
    You better get yours because I am going to get mine

  7. There are only 86,400 seconds in a day …and 'BIB' is not a methodology from what was described here

    having confidence, being likeable, and trying to do something meaningful goes a long way though
