PANEL: Impact, Inc.
Limited Capacity full

You don’t have to build houses in the developing world, launch a trendy e-commerce company with a one-for-one model, or subsist on Ramen noodles if you want to start a venture that will help others. There are a number of ways to be an effective social entrepreneur. But caring is the one big prerequisite. Whether you identify as non-profit or for-profit, creating a purpose-driven culture looks different for each company. Join panelists as they share how they approach impact within their organizations.
