Great to see our founder and CEO, Stephen Plunkett, getting the last word on the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Bootcamp 2015 video. Stephen says that one of the things that he loves about meeting other Social Entrepreneurs at the Bootcamp event is that 'it's great to be around an organisation like SEI, because it's really important that you can meet people, find out what other people are up to and know you're not the only mad lunatic out there'.
Don't just take my word for it. Check out the video below. Enjoy!
