Flavio Masson's Income Inequality Talk on Fighting Hunger in Brazil

In his income inequality talk, Flavio Masson discusses the disparity in Brazil and what he is doing to decrease the gap. In a country where there are 11.2 million starving people, the speaker felt compelled to help. His solution is a social enterprise where every time he eats, a hungry person can too.

The result is a food ordering platform. This satiates the hunger of the rich, who can order in 30 seconds and feel connected to a community of people with shared values. Restaurants are charged 10% of the order, but are happy to pay as it is low risk and they receive more business. 50% of Rangri's net profits go to hunger-fighting philanthropies, so the poor are looked after as well. This way the profit made is in equal proportion to the impact. The platform also has a gamified component, making it fun for people to give back.

The income inequality talk also highlights the importance of partnerships.
