The founders of Aspecks have been recognised as part of the Future 100 Young Social Entrepreneurs of the Year awards for 2009.  As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week the Future 100 Awards puts the spotlight on young people aged 18-35 who are demonstrating entrepreneurial flair and innovation in running a responsible business venture; one which demonstrates a balance between economic, environmental and social goals to achieve ultimate business success. Global Entrepreneurship Week is looking to unleash people’s enterprising ideas to tackle some of society’s biggest issues such as climate change, poverty, gender equality and health. The Future 100 awards encourages and rewards extraordinary vision, ethical business practice and social responsibility. They aim to showcase businesses that offer innovative and sustainable solutions to social problems. As you know Aspecks is an ethical enterprise that is designed to facilitate the exchange of culture and knowledge to help break down the various boundaries that exist in our Global Society. Consequently, Aspecks took the initiative to get involved with Global Entrepreneurship Week in order to explore the many opportunities that this week offers.

The granting of the award is testimony to Aspecks’ commitment to global society, the environment and ethical business practice and values. As a matter of policy we print on ethically sourced and sustainable t-shirts usually ‘fair trade’. The benefit of this can be seen in the growing commercial work we have completed for the Co-Operative Party. Similarly in October 2008 we were commissioned to design and print t-shirts for the Pathfinder Project.

This commission for over 100 t-shirts was completed free of charge as a demonstration of our commitment to Pathfinder and the young people who benefit from it. Aspecks aims to build upon its already established international connections (we have members of our website and sold t-shirts in France, Ghana, Canada and the USA amongst others) to develop a successful enterprise that produces sufficient profit for micro-finance projects and attention for social causes globally.
