the problem
Nature and Context

Working with local investor communities to show them the opportunities and potential impact of investment, linking them to already existing operating investor networks increases impact. Social entrepreneurs come up with great ideas to address social problems. Social entrepreneurs—driven less by profit and loss margins and more by a philanthropic desire to improve their communities, society, or the world as a whole—emphasize aid to poverty-stricken or otherwise marginalized populations.

Symptoms and Causes

More and more entrepreneurs are entering the social impact space and lack the networking capabilities of seasoned entrepreneurs/businesses.
