Social Enterprise

San Francisco - Feb 05, 2013

Simply stated, social enterprises are businesses that above all else seek to advance the common good. A social enterprise is an organization or venture that achieves its primary social or environmental mission using business methods and strategies to yield both financial and social returns. Well established as a hub of innovation, finance, and social consciousness, San Francisco has emerged as an attractive home for social enterprises.

Chicago Booth invites you to join us in San Francisco for a discussion with Booth alumni and social entrepreneurs who will share their expertise and perspective on the current environment. Hear their take on the future of social entrepreneurship.
