Anti-social entrepreneurs?

Some ideas at international conferences are so silly you'd have to be there strictly for the socializing (or reporting on it), to take them seriously;
The journey to the winter wonderland of Davos has been long for many participants in the WEF 2014. Among them are a group of social entrepreneurs who've come here from all over the world to make their voices heard.
Hearing their voices being Job 1, it seems. Though fund raising tips are appreciated too;
For social entrepreneur Mats Kjaer from Denmark, it's a very special day as he has breakfast together with Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohamed Yunus, who was able to escape from the hustle and bustle in the meeting center for a few moments and is also residing on the Schatzalp. Kjaer manages to get a few tips from the prominent guest as to how to run his business.
The Dane's firm is called My C4, through which he collects money for entrepreneurs on the ground in Africa. The online platform presents projects and coordinates co-financing.
"A credit of $1,000 [738 euros] is enough to create five jobs," said the Dane, who lives in Kenya. He's collected and allocated 22 million euros in the past seven years.
Wonder how much he allocated to himself for the trip to Davos.
