Social Entrepreneurship

Social Entrepreneurship
Part of 2010 Conference on Entrepreneurship
Recognizing a social problem or opportunity, a social entrepreneur applies entrepreneurship principles to organize, create and manage a venture to drive social change. Rather than tackling these issues through the domains of nonprofits or government agencies, social entrepreneurs are increasingly realizing that social impact and profits need not be in opposition, and are forming companies with a Double Bottom Line. Our panel of social entrepreneurs and investors will address issues unique to social entrepreneurship as well as current trends and opportunities.

    Interesting, and very informative to me. Both social entrepreneurs (also investors) delved into the process of developing each of their own ideas of fulfilling a social mission while being capable of producing profit. Hearing each of their own stories or experiences with their businesses and the idea of social entrepreneurship has been adopted (in my head haha) as personal lessons and knowledge that I greatly appreciate them for sharing. Thanks for the upload.
