Entrepreneurship “The ‘E’ process will create a better world. It is not just about new companies, capital, and job formation, nor is only about innovation, creativity and breakthroughs. It is also about fostering an ingenious human spirit and improving mankind.” - Professor Jeffrey Timmons
Social Entrepreneurs “A social entrepreneur finds what is not working and solves the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution and persuading entire societies to take new leaps. He or she is not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the entire fishing industry.” - Bill Drayton, CEO, chair and founder of Ashoka
Social Entrepreneurs Adopt a mission to create and sustain social value Recognize and relentlessly pursuit new opportunities to serve that mission Engage in a process of continuous innovation, adaptation, and learning Act boldly without being limited by resources currently in hand, and Exhibit heightened accountability to the constituencies served and for the outcomes created. -J.
