On a cold saturday afternoon on 14-November-2009, Tokyo International Exchange Center held the coveted event '29th TIEC Research and Presentation'. This event focussed on the subject "Needs, Challenges & Opportunities for Social Entrepreneurs in Asia". It was well covered by media and Internet.
For the first time, a video is available of the event.
