I started my career as social worker working in mental health care. For 12 years I worked as director of an NGO developing and providing community-based services for people with mental health problems in Budapest, Hungary. As a manager it was very frustrating to handle uncertainty, seeing the reluctance of our governments to invest into this field and jumping from one grant to another for many many years. Personally, I also felt sort of guilty. Managing this level of uncertainty, serving hundreds of clients, maintaining a team, developing and introducing new services required the same skills as running an enterprise but we were still living on grants provided by donors or burned the taxpayers' money. I wanted to see my organization being more independent and personally I wanted to prove that I am the same way a good manager as those running a successful business or establish a startup. That drove me to social entrepreneurship where I could keep being honest to my values but I could also could prove my managerial skills in a more independent way.
