Social entrepreneurs are people with innovative solutions to society’s key social problems. They are ambitious, commercially aware and extremely hardworking. They aim to challenge the economic system of today by putting people, the community and the environment they live in at the forefront of their work.
Examples of social of social enterprises include The Big Issue, Divine chocolate, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, the Eden Project and the Co-op.
These businesses are changing the world for the better. They make their money from selling goods and services in the market, but they reinvest profits back into the business or the local community. As a result, when they profit, society profits.
Working in collaboration with London Business School and UCL we have brought together an eclectic mix of carefully selected social enterprises and accomplished speakers. We aim to inspire you to become entrepreneurs, challenge your conceptions of our current economic system and educate you with lifelong transferable business skills.
