Social Entrepreneurship Lecture Series – Business Beyond Usual – Social Innovation as a Sustainable Business Model

Can Social Innovation be a sustainable business model?  Nowadays, we do not simply rely on the government or NGOs for solving social problems.  What can be done by a start-up enterprise or multinational corporation?  How will Social Innovation be incorporated into their business practices?

In this session, we will look at Social Enterprise in Asia, the opportunities and hurdles that exist, and the scalability of various businesses.  Whether you are a CSR manager, social enterprise practitioner, venture philanthropist/ venture capitalist, or a change maker, you are welcome to join our lecture to find out more!
