PROFIT, PURPOSE, SOCIAL IMPACT & ENTREPRENEURSHIP
With social challenges flaring up worldwide, business leaders face growing demand to contribute to more equal societies. Investors are now asking about the impact a company has on society and the environment. A single-minded focus on profits is no longer an option.
Into this reality comes a growing set of entrepreneurs who, able to innovate in a way that established companies cannot, have built profitable enterprises by addressing social needs. This is the essence of the Shared Value business model – profit with purpose. Established businesses can play a crucial role in supporting young entrepreneurs to the benefit of the whole business ecosystem, providing them with business opportunities and support to scale and increase their impact.
Join corporate leaders and entrepreneurs at our upcoming business breakfast to find out how big businesses can enable small enterprises, with particular focus on women and the youth. Gain insights from leading companies on how they create financial and social impact returns. Hear young entrepreneurs on the businesses they built around growing inclusive economies. Join us to hear first-hand how the Shared Value business management strategy can drive business growth.
