2015 Social Enterprise Conference— Imagine and Inspire: The Future of Social Enterprise

What if business could use innovative solutions to solve the world’s most pressing social problems? This is the question that has driven countless individuals to imagine the next 100 years – imagine how they could succeed, where earlier dreamers have failed – in realizing aspirations of a better world, one without poverty, hunger, gender discrimination, and income inequality. Imagine living in a world that harnesses new technology and new ideas to develop renewable resources, clean water, and sustainable and equitable food systems. The annual Social Enterprise Conference at Columbia Business School brings together thought leaders from across private, nonprofit, public, and academic sectors to share best practices, debate critical issues, and collaborate on innovative concepts to inspire change.
