Fri, April 1, 2011; 11:00 - 12:30
Instead of the traditional nonprofit route, a new breed of social entrepreneur is birthing ventures with for-profit business models at their core. These for-profit entrepreneurs are reinventing capitalism and demonstrating how organisations can use profitable models as a force for sustainable social change. How do these new leaders balance the need for profits with their social mission? Do trade-offs change in different growth stages? This interactive session will highlight the various ways mission-driven for-profits are scaling their operations globally whilst staying true to their social values.
