The problems we face today are complex and abstract, but an exciting and rapidly evolving field that is changing the way we see business is on the rise: social entrepreneurship.
Social entrepreneurs are often moved by something they see in the world around them that is impacting the health or well-being of people or ecosystems. Social enterprises primarily focus on a social purpose, which could include (but not limited to): health, environmental, cultural or other common-good purposes. It is a new lens through which we can view the world of businesses making a positive impact in the world.
The EPIC Social Enterprise Forum is meant to showcase and highlight the many unique social enterprises within our local community. Often, social entrepreneurs come from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. During this event, you’ll have the opportunity to hear extraordinary stories, discover how social entrepreneurs are impacting our community in a positive way, and connect with like-minded individuals.
