How do social entrepreneurs and the projects they create impact the world at large?
Maximillian Goetz, founder of the non-profit organization Robotics for All, discusses his experiences with social entrepreneurship and the real-world impacts he has witnessed firsthand. Maximilian Goetz is a first-year student at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. In April 2017, he founded Robotics for All when he was a high school freshman at Henry. M Gunn High School in Palo Alto, CA. He built Robotics for All from the ground up, teaching its first classes and eventually expanding it into a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In addition to Robotics for All, Maximilian is a pro-bono nonprofit consultant for three student organizations, a tour guide for Georgetown’s Blue and Gray tour guide association, and an online English teacher to students in China. In the past, Maximilian served as a student advisor to Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, a lead legislative aide to Councilman Greg Tanaka, and was a member of the Palo Alto Youth Council. Maximilian has served over 3,000 community service hours since his freshman year of high school and is honored to be a two-time President’s Gold Community Service Award recipient. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
