from the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepeneurship:

Just cause it tickled me.


What is a Social Entrepreneur?

  • A pragmatic visionary who achieves large scale, systemic and sustainable social change through a new invention, a different approach, a more rigorous application of known technologies or strategies, or a combination of these.
  • Combines the characteristics represented by Richard Branson and Mother Teresa.


I'm fascinated by the whole emergence of the "social entrepenuer" scene because it seems so applicable to the mission of lay apostles called to transform the structures and cultures of the world. So I hope to blog more on the subject later.
