BUSINESS AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Today’s young people are as concerned with making a positive impact on the world as they are with making money. A whopping 94% want to use their skills to benefit a cause. Meanwhile, only half of young people have confidence in the free market system, down from 80% just 15 years ago.
Against this backdrop, social enterprise has taken off as a new formula for success, combining capitalism with a do-gooder mentality. These self-funding, for-profit businesses also have a mission to tackle global issues such as alleviating hunger, improving education, and combatting climate change. To achieve their high-minded goals, the companies might fund specific programs, partner with governments or existing philanthropic entities, or follow a one-for-one donation model, and work on either the local or international level.
Here are five reasons why we believe social entrepreneurship is the new business model:
- It connects you to your life purpose.
- It keeps you motivated.
- It brings you lasting happiness.
- It helps you help others discover their life purpose.
- It is what today’s consumers want.
