Social Enterprise Workshop, November 5th, 2010, Downtown San Diego.
In the past, Entrepreneurs have been called 'opportunists', because they tend to take advantage of asymmetries in the economic environment. Businesses today are expected to take advantage of their customers ignorance, and Corporations are designed to manipulate our economy for their profits. These unjust business practices have become the norm, a cancer within our society, but now the very economy itself is failing due to these unfair and unsustainable practices.
It doesn't have to be this way, we can build prosperous businesses without preying upon our customers or the environment. We can choose to create an ethical, sustainable business model from the ground up. The biggest opportunities for entrepreneurism today is in social businesses, which seek to solve problems above making profits. We are in a time of great change, and only those enterprises that are able to adapt and evolve will survive, and only those that practice fair trade will ultimately succeed.
Come join a dialog about how to build an ethical business. Learn how to change existing corporations into the kind of socially responsible businesses that are not only sustainable, but produce value for their entire community.
