Karen and Jory will discuss the emergence of the new industry of social entrepreneurship and how women can play a pivotal role in social change. Social entrepreneurship combines the unique product technology, cash flow, and leadership skill of for-profit companies with the heart, passion, and purpose of not-for-profit organizations with the goal of providing sustainable solutions to the world’s biggest problems. Social entrepreneurship doesn’t require a degree from business school — all it requires is a desire to make an impact.
