Social Entrepreneurship – From Raising Funds to Raising Revenue

Is Social Good congruent with the world of business? Can startups be formed, funded, developed and expected to implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues? Is profit not an incentive for a social entrepreneur? How is the concept of social entrepreneurship applied to organizations with different sizes, aims, and beliefs? Join this session with entrepreneurs who are seeking to solve a social issue by providing alternatives to current market solutions or by changing the conversation altogether about what solutions can be offered to a persistent problem. Learn how to raise funds, hire “A” players and do all the things that successful startups are supposed to do, while still remaining true to the socially impactful mission.
