How to Lead a Social Revolution and Make a Profit

#sxsw #BKRev

It’s time for a revolution. Time to change the way we think about business and how we can have a positive affect on the world around us. Truth is you CAN turn a profit and build a successful business that addresses some of our worst social problems including poverty, obesity, sustainability, institutional injustice, and more. You CAN lead a meaningful life and reap the rewards of your success. In this presentation we will define what it means to be a social entrepreneur. We will then look beyond charities and non-profits and look at real world examples of alternative business models that address social issues while making a profit. We will also look at the challenges social entrepreneurs face and how to tackle them so you can start your own social revolution.
