“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.

It’s October, a time of harvest celebrations, a time of thanksgiving. Still, it’s impossible not to notice that we live in a world of haves and have nots.

We also spent an interesting few days in BC at the Social Venture Institute. Read all about it in this month’s feature article. Plus we have stories on the latest from the B Corp front, a new school for social entrepreneurs, and more. Enjoy!

This piece will serve to clarify the difference between “B Corp” and “Benefit Corporation,” highlight the benefits and responsibilities of becoming a Certified B Corp for social entrepreneurs, and touch on Canadian developments of Benefit Corporation legislative proposals. Read more…
