Why Social Entrepreneurship?

If we wish to continue growing as a society, we must find sustainable solutions to the most pressing issues our generation faces. From access to clean water and food, to creating companies with a culture of social responsibility and employee development – social entrepreneurship will allow us to scale solutions like no other generation has experienced before.

Who is this for?

This event is tailored for students who want to understand how their major is related to the concept of social entrepreneurship and how they can impact others and change the world regardless of what career they choose.
