Accelerator Workshop: Social Entrepreneurship | April 20, 10:00 - 12:00 hrs.

Location: I5, Intermezzo Building

Get a better understanding of Social Enterprise Business Modeling

Success is often measured in terms of profitability and market share. Unfortunately, such a focus tends to ignore often or be unaware of more significant social and environmental societal issues. Not surprisingly, we witness that capitalist-driven, shareholder-focused companies and enterprises often grab profits for themselves while negatively impacting the communities around them.

Therefore, this raises the question - How can organizations continue to make economic gains but equally contribute to the society and communities in which they are embedded? Alternatively, can entrepreneurs focus on creating social good while not being shy about making profits to keep their business running? Fortunately, the answer is Yes!
