Designing playgrounds for children in our neighborhoods (KaBoom!), teaching Peruvian girls the technical skills to earn a living (Vital Voices), or figuring out how to engage Chicago’s adolescent girls in technical coding (GirlDevelopIt), the social enterprise movement connects your entrepreneurial intuition to your social values.
“Whether we call it conscious capitalism, sustainable growth, root capital, or design for impact, social entrepreneurs combine their social passion with the opportunity to earn a profitable living.”
Indeed, most states in the US have adopted laws to promote “social benefit investment” by both traditional lenders and venture capitalists along with philanthropists and volunteers. Social enterprises save tax dollars, usually employ local residents, redesign neighborhood playgrounds and local clubs, creating change in education, unemployment, food deserts, and retail outlets.
