Social Entrepreneurship & Impact Investing
Social entrepreneurship addresses the root problems of poverty through the power of business and innovation to provide sustainable economic and social impact.
Impact Investing provides capital to address social and environmental issues, with the understanding that they will generate not only a monetary return but beneficial impact on society and the environment.
Social Entrepreneurship and Impact Investing could displace efforts such as regulations and philanthropical efforts aimed to reduce harm from business affairs.
Both look at expanding business metrics beyond pure monetary profit to include the enterprise’s return to society.
