The Social Enterprise of 2030.

Bret Waters July 13, 2022

We can be pretty sure that a high-impact social enterprise in 2030 will look a whole lot different than it did in 2020. The resources and technologies will be different, the impact capital landscape will be different, and the world in which we deliver impact will continue to grow more complex. It’s been 20+ years now since the concept of a social enterprise was pioneered by Muhammad Yunus, Bill Drayton, and others.  So how can we reimagine social entrepreneurship today in a world of new technologies, new capital structures, distributed collaboration, and new economic realities? The World Economic Forum says we are entering a new era in the global economy – so what will a high-impact social enterprise look like in this new era? Join us for a lively, interactive discussion of the topic with a panel of experts.
