Social Entrepreneur

TEDxRuakuraFor most of the last 200 years enterprise, really capitalism has been about making money to line the pockets of the rich. It has been about the individual, not about the greater good.

Social Entrepreneurs make a difference in the world by using business to implement social change for good. I believe that the charitable model is changing, from a donation based model, to a business lead model, where profits, ideas, people and resource is invested into social change.

Social enterprise is an emerging field that has a lot of buzz to it, and not a lot of large-scale action. I am it’s student.
