"The world is shaped by people, the world is shaped by you.” - Okan McAllister

Meet Okan McAllister, the founder of Prime Movers, a youth-led social enterprise, based out of Vienna Austria, that creates social businesses and educates the next generation of impact leaders. 

In this episode we cover:

  • The journey that led Okan to founding Prime Movers.
  • The culture shock he experienced when he first arrived to Europe from Istanbul, Turkey at age 15.  
  • The importance of systems thinking and systems entrepreneurship and how it works. 
  • The various programs offered by Prime Movers to help encourage youth to bring about social and environmental change in the future.
  • Prime Movers most recent social enterprise, Kindby -- an online store that allows you to buy and rent ethically made baby clothing and accessories.
  • The zero-waste movement in Austria #sustainableliving. 
  • Tips for individuals contemplating to start their own businesses.

I had such a wonderful time chatting with Okan. He is a wealth of knowledge and working on some really amazing social and environmental projects. Truly hope you enjoy listening to this conversation as much as I enjoyed recording it.
