Are you a flying fish?
Flying fish finalists 2014
Fish generally don´t fly.
Those who help others generally don´t create profit.
And those who make the profit don´t usually returning it back to society.
However, there are some among us whose business focus is on creating a real social value
and improving the lives of those who were less fortunate, loved or healthy.
Maria, David, Aurel, and Martina are „Flying fish“. Why?
Because they are courageous and brave, honest and fair, do not give up on their dreams. They want to contribute to change in the society. In addition to their social and volunteer work, they are not afraid to be entrepreneurial in the process.
