Changing the World Through Social Entrepreneurship
CORNELL BUSINESS IMPACT SYMPOSIUM 2021
Resilience through sustainability is needed more than ever. As the line between business and social and environmental issues is disappearing, the private sector is learning how it can be a productive partner in promoting solutions to issues such a social and environmental justice, food insecurity, climate change, supply chain transparency, overconsumption, and more. They are coming to the realization that addressing these issues through core business strategies is not only good for society but also good for business. Attend one or all of the panels to hear from those leading efforts to create a more resilient world.
Modern social entrepreneurship is transforming the way we do business, using market-based solutions to address social issues in innovative ways. Bringing a wealth of perspectives and experience, panelists will cover topics such as human-centered design, scaling sustainably, access to capital, and more. They will also share their founding stories and the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
If you are interested in how to make a positive impact through social innovation, join us for this panel of accomplished and inspiring social entrepreneurs. Student host: Social Enterprise at Cornell club.
