Want to make money & change the world? An idiot’s guide to "social entrepreneurship"

Want to make money & change the world? An idiot’s guide to "social entrepreneurship" | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
The what, how and why of social entrepreneurship – using business process for positive change – featuring VC firm Omidyar and startups Lenddo and d.light.
Samuel Pavin's insight:

Well, I am an idiot so quite glad to have found this piece on social entrepreneurship.

That is sure a growing trend - at least the name is - and, as they mention in the article, quite a large topic putting together various kinds of ventures.

Still a slightly foggy world but definitely a path walked by more and more entrepreneurs which does call for attention.

And the positioning of the message/venture half way between NGOs and Startups make it quite appealing for people at the moment.

This article has given the idiot Me a better understanding so I can assume it is quite of interest :)

From Strip Clubs to Startups: Old Las Vegas' New Gamble

From Strip Clubs to Startups: Old Las Vegas' New Gamble | Entrepreneurship in the World | Scoop.it
This is the new Las Vegas. And I'll bet on this Las Vegas any day of the week.
Samuel Pavin's insight:

A little more on places. Actually not only related to the sole innovation but rather startups initiatives.

I had a long chat end of last year about this initiative - huge stuff indeed but gorgeous initiative be it only thanks to the strong linkage with the community - and it does seem to keep developing nicely.

I really like it and just hope that would set a trend at a time when both private and public sectors, everywhere in the Word, are moving forward on startup themes and are trying to get organized or, at least, structure the existing ecosystem.

Downtown Vegas offers a good scheme to replicate.
