When Disaster Strikes: Social Entrepreneurs Managing Through Crisis
Thu, April 15, 2010; 14:00 - 15:30
Social entrepreneurs tackle difficult problems in challenging environments, often working in places with weak infrastructure, fragile government and limited resources. When disaster hits, such as the earthquake in Haiti, social entrepreneurs often have the networks and processes in place to be effective early responders. This requires meeting the dual challenge of managing their own operations in a time of stress and coordinating relief efforts. In this session, social entrepreneurs who have managed through crisis will talk about what it takes to be effective.
