Social Entrepreneurship

From Stanford Graduate School of Business: 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.
