Social Entrepreneurship for Founders: Five Things


The world is changing, and so is the way do business. 2015 marked the first year millennials made up the majority of workforce. Not to be outdone, it also marked the year when baby boomers were twice as likely to start a business than millennials. The notable trend for both of these groups---a marked focus on using skills and companies to create or further social impact.

In this session, learn from author, attorney, founder, convener, Neetal Parekh about how to understand and actionably navigate this space. This acclaimed session has been shared with law students, Starting Bloc Fellows, Hive Global Leaders, and at co-working and accelerator programs in Silicon Valley, and will explore the pivotal role social entrepreneurship can play in the shifting space of local, national, and global change.
