The Promise of Social Entrepreneurship in Emerging Markets

The Promise of Social Entrepreneurship in Emerging Markets

Thu, April 16, 2015; 11:45 - 13:00
Location: SBS, Seminar 9

Social Entrepreneurship has been around for decades. But is it meeting its goals as a mechanism for improving the lives of the poor in emerging markets? Have we found the right financial, capacity development, and policy tools to unlock its potential? Some would say no – and that’s the problem. Others would say that it’s destined to remain a niche strategy, limited to certain sectors and certain countries. Let’s meet to discuss the challenges and opportunities for emerging market social entrepreneurship.
