Louise Aitken is the CEO of Ākina Foundation which is growing social enterprise in Aotearoa New Zealand. In this interview (the longest so far!) we talk about her childhood, what it was like growing up with her twin sister Natalie, moving to Brazil age 17 and how that shaped her identity, taking care of her father who passed away from cancer in her 20s, her career working in London, how she made the decision to return to New Zealand and her work in CSR and other areas since returning. We then go into lots of detail about social enterprise in New Zealand - both its history here, what the shape of it may be and what the future could hold.
