For Good & Profit: Impact Entrepreneurship FTW

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Over the past few years we've seen a tremendous rise in social good for-profit enterprises. This session, which includes leading social good entrepreneurs and impact investors, will examine why we're seeing this boom and what the future of social enterprise might look like. We'll look at advantages social good companies have over traditional businesses (recruitment advantages, retention, etc). We'll examine why some social issues are best solved in a for-profit structure, and talk about what problems might best be left to traditional nonprofits. Finally, we'll offer resources and advice for aspiring social good entrepreneurs, based on our own experience founding, running, and investing in social good startups.
