About this event
These days, society’s commitment to doing social good influences everything from our careers to our purchases—and the influx of ethical brands has given us the ability to make a difference. These brands and companies, or social businesses, give us the opportunity to support our favourite causes by using our purchasing power. So what is a social business? The Social Business Alliance defines it as: “Organizations that address a basic unmet need or solve a social problem through a market-driven approach.” A business that works for social good often seeks to find a balance between profit, sustainability and social impact. But while starting a small business to create social change is noble, it does take hard work to do the good you’ve set out to do. in the event, we’ll cover the basics of starting social entrepreneurship, including finding your focus, researching it, implementing it and how to keep it going—and growing.
