A social entrepreneur uses the power, structure and techniques of entrepreneurship to address and solve societal problems. Some examples are TOMS shoes, Seventh Generation or Global Girlfriend.
Social entrepreneurship sounds wonderful – but how does it play out in reality? This seminar will address some of the early questions and issues that social entrepreneurs face as they identify their personal and business values.
At the end of the session attendees will have an understanding of the:
Structure of a Social Entrepreneurship venture as an alternative to a non-profit organizational structure to address societal problems
Similarities and differences between starting a Social Entrepreneurship venture and a traditional profit based business
Key steps to get started on developing a Social Entrepreneurship venture.
