Man of the Week: Mason Soiza and Giving Back

Depending on who you ask, the definition of a great person will change, as everyone has different hopes and aspirations, and they will likely transfer some of those over to their idea of a great individual. However, there are a few things that are universally beloved, and both modesty and charity come to mind. 

Giving to those with less than you have makes you feel better about yourself, but it also gives them an opportunity that they would have otherwise missed out on. In our People of the Week segments, we try to find individuals who can be objectively classified as having done good for the world, and so it may seem that we feature a disproportionate number of philanthropists. 

As you may have guessed from that previous sentence, this iteration of Man of the Week will feature someone renowned for their charity: Mason Soiza. We’re going to discuss Mr. Soiza’s philosophy behind giving but before that, let’s introduce you to the man himself. 

Our Man of the Week

Mason Soiza made a name for himself as one of the most impressive young entrepreneurs in England, and some might even argue that he had an impact across the whole of Europe. Mr. Soiza used his tech expertise to the best of his abilities, and he came out on top for it, but he endeavored not to let his greed get the best of him, like many other people who work in the same field. 

While a strong drive to keep going is essential in an entrepreneur, Mason Soiza tried his best to curb it so that he could have the opportunity to help other people. He decided that he had made enough to live comfortably off of his investments, and he is now using his success to give others opportunities they may not have. 

Mason Soiza is involved in plenty of initiatives to help the underprivileged get a chance in the highly competitive tech industry, including his own Verdant Lake nonprofit. He is also slated to host the upcoming Citadel Tech Summit, and he is a known friend of many charitable organizations. 

An Interview with Mason Soiza

I: Interviewer | M: Mason Soiza 

I: So what inspired you to start giving back to the community?

M: I'll be perfectly honest with you, when I first started making money, the thought of charity hadn't crossed my mind, as I was too caught up with finally having "made it." Eventually, I realized that I hadn't accomplished much by simply accumulating wealth. 

I: What charitable initiatives are you currently working on?

M: Well, we actually have a variety of projects that are in the works that we will be unveiling over the coming months. I won't be able to give you too much info about them, but I'm more than happy to get into the details about projects that are currently running. 

As you may know, one of my most successful nonprofits is the Verdant Lake project, and that is currently going ahead with its first 100 applicants in a small-scale test. Some of the projects that are in the works also include the Expanded Horizons Initiative, which is a work placement program for promising candidates in the tech industry. 

I: Do you ever plan to return to entrepreneurship full-time, or is philanthropy the only path for you now?

M: (chuckles) While I wouldn’t exactly rule out a potential return to the field of tech entrepreneurship full-time, I am far too engrossed in my charitable endeavors to continue at the moment. Of course, I am still working on some projects, including my expanding SEO business. 

I would like to eventually find the right balance between work and philanthropy, but for the time, I have no problem devoting the majority of my efforts to helping others. 

The Right Example

We hope that our short but enlightening interview with Mason Soiza managed to shed some light on the world of a young and rich entrepreneur who is trying to do the right thing. Stories such as these give us hope in a world that is increasingly divided by wealth inequality, among a host of other issues.
