Traditionally we think of businesses, charities and entrepreneurship as completely different worlds. Businesses sell products or services to make a profit, charities purposely work to address social issues and entrepreneurs strive to innovate. However, increasingly, socially-minded entrepreneurs and innovative nonprofits are tearing down the wall between these worlds. They are merging profit, purpose and innovation to create a powerful new hybrid: the social enterprise. Profitable businesses that innovatively and sustainably tackle problems locally, nationally or internationally. In this workshop, you will get an introduction to social entrepreneurship, and in particular, you will learn:
-What is a Social Enterprise and what makes it unique, and;
-The Rewards and Challenges of building a social enterprise.
