Social entrepreneurship is rooted in a sense that the limits of Capitalism, combined with the limits of government and NGOs, are creating both a new set of needs as well as new, innovative opportunities for meeting those needs. These needs are best met by social entrepreneurs that address areas of substantial market failure by building efficient organizations but that think that it does not all come down to profit making. They try to achieve a double bottom line: blending financial and social or environmental value
This conference will give you an overview of a phenomenon that many experts describe as the Next Revolution: one that will transform many of the institutions of our society and re-define our understanding of social work and entrepreneurship as a whole.
