Social Entrepreneurship: Doing Good and Doing Well
Thursday, September 27th from 5:30-7:30
14 E. Jackson, Tenth Floor, Room 1001, Chicago, Illinois
Chicago has a thriving socially-purposeful entrepreneurial community. How do members of that community do good and do well simultaneously? What do their business models look like? What drives them? How can you get involved and what do you need to know if you want to be a social entrepreneur?
Join the Young Professionals of Chicago, in partnership with DePaul University, for an evening program at DePaul’s downtown campus. Enjoy significant networking with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. The formal program is an expert panel discussion. The panel will focus on how to become a social entrepreneur, what it’s like to be one, and a discussion of some of the deeper aspects of social entrepreneurial performance. There will be time for questions and discussion with the audience.
The social entrepreneurship panel consists of a former student who recently became a social entrepreneur, a social entrepreneur who has undertaken multiple enterprises, and a business school professor who specializes in the area and has worked with over a hundred entrepreneurs over the last decade.
