"In a not-so-distant past, college degrees were the safety nets that led to job security. Now those nets are riddled with holes, sagged down by the weight of so many recipients. And unless young professionals have something new to offer, awarding them some leverage back into the net, they slip between the seams into the greatest hole of all: unemployment."

Social Entrepreneurship: A Fundamental Game Changer

Social Entrepreneurship: A Fundamental Game Changer | Social Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Published in Partnership with Forbes.com.

Article Highlights:Social Entrepreneurship has changed the way social change takes place.The change has three primary differentiating features: the blurring of the demarcation of profit and non-profit; the emphasis on impact and efficacy; and the sense of urgency and need to scale.

Whether there is a profit motive or not, the notion that business has a role to play in addressing societal issues is at the heart of today’s discourse on social entrepreneurship.   Defining what social entrepreneurship is as well as the difference between it and traditional non-profit management as well as philanthropy is a flourishing discourse.,,,  http://skollworldforum.org/2013/01/07/social-entrepreneurship-a-fundamental-game-changer/
