Every business requires a certain amount of passion and inspiration to make it a resounding success.

Not all of these inspirations need to be focused on profits only either.

For example, a number of entrepreneurs enter business for both profitability and also altruistic reasons such as helping the community and inspiring others who will in turn become entrepreneurs of the future.

Check the company Xinca Eco Shoes at https://xinca.com.ar !

Our founder, Caroline Berube, got the chance to meet Alejandro Malgor at the Young Global Leader Summit in Dubai last week and he is truly a source of inspiration for all our young entrepreneurs! Ale and Caroline are both alumni YGL.

Ale and his 2 business partners, all former Argentinian rugby players, turn, since 2013, old tyres into sneakers and these shoes are manufactured at the San Felipe Mendoza prison.

Wonderful example of a sustainable business, recycling rubber, while creating a social impact by rehabilitating prisoners giving them opportunities to build a brighter future once their term is over.

Kudos to Ale and his team!
