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.

  • Ken Oh:

    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.

    There is no “saving the world” if there are people that are ” helping” and others that are ” being saved” stop with the sensasionalism of becoming the ” saver of the world”. I know it makes the “ego” feel “proud and good”, to “save ” people from their ” misery” taht were created from this same thought taht you jast have as a “social entrepreneur”.

  • Raquel Fernandes:

    The only thing tat discusses me is who’s face is “helping” and who’s face is “receiving ” the help, and it all becomes a big marketing of “helping”. It all become such a ” forum” of ” services” and dependability of their ” knowledge” to “save ” ” the rest” . How interesting

    Great video. I would like to get some feedback on the Ghostrade movement. It is an innovative way to recycle technology as well as filter it down to other people who can benefit. It would be great to link with this video. Do a YouTube Search or check out video. This is just a beta

  • live2sellgroup:

    It’s great that these guys are working hard to make the world a better place. But it would be great if they were drinking tap water instead of bottled water & were drinking coffee out of a mug instead of a throwaway container.

    The micro-finance scheme initiated by Mohammad Yunus showed that small change implemented widely can bring about very large change. Switching from throwaway containers such as those used in this video is a simple start in our transition to a more sustainable future.

    Discovered in the 21stC: The Underlying Law of Nature.

    The underlying law of nature may be the world’s most useful, profitable and encouraging knowledge.

    The top 3 General Characteristics of The underlying law of nature are:

    #1. The Way of All Things

    #2. The Basis of All Laws and Principles

    #3. The Basis of All Health, Growth, Efficacy and Efficiency

    Google it — as a start.

    The empirical process for identifying the underlying law of nature was discovered in 2008. Soon we may all do so.

  • BenGenio:

    The definition given of Entrepreneurship is that of Social Entrepreneurship according to Greg Dees. How does it tie into Technology Entrepreneurship? Is there perhaps another definition that best describes the technological nature of high-tech firms? Thanks for uploading these videos, I’m really enjoying them!
