A socially innovative idea is seeded
New business ideas are born out of experience, perceiving need and sensing opportunity.
People often ask ‘where did the idea for The Melting Pot come from?’
The answer is an amalgamation of Claire’s personal and professional experience, interests and values.
Claire has a background in working in the Third Sector and setting up projects and initiatives. She did an MSc in Human Ecology and a thesis looking at ‘the barriers and enablers of motivation of eco-social activists’. Combining all this with a self-employed family, and a natural ability to ‘create connections’, so becoming a social entrepreneur seems somewhat inevitable.
