ABOUT THE SUMMIT
Most social entrepreneurs are motivated by the social impact their work generates; however this is often juxtaposed with the need to generate enough income to survive. On one hand, the prevailing neoliberal capitalist mode of production is often accused of lacking a humane face as it is exclusively motivated by profit margins, at all cost. On the other hand, social good premised on charity is not sustainable; and state interventionist redistribution of wealth does not often yield the efficiency, productivity and social impact it is meant to generate. This summit will be a creative space to show how social entrepreneurship can both do social good and be profitable to those who engage in it. It will be held over two days; 16th-17th November 2017, and will bring together 70 entrepreneurs together.
