We would also like to give you some information about the event and our centre:
About Center for Social Enterprise & Leadership
The Centre is a leading academic entity for the advancement of social entrepreneurship and leadership worldwide - we believe that massive shifts in the global economic, social and environmental frameworks are already underway reshaping the meaning of economic growth. It is the moment to create and champion new market systems based on entrepreneurship in the public interest, and disruptive innovations embracing new technologies, new laws and regulations and new business models.
C-SEL seeks to bridge the gap between business and the social sector and between theory and practice - so that knowledge can be translated effectively for use by front-line social entrepreneurs, corporates, NGOs, nonprofit leaders, philanthropists and impact investors.
