ITK #3 - Social Ventures

In episode 3 we feature a little more about careers and leadership in entrepreneurship and in particular social ventures. Social entrepreneurship is the use of start-up companies and other entrepreneurs to develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. Ideally cultivating purpose-driven leaders and businesses that can transform the world and achieve a sustainable future.
