Social Entrepreneurs and Investor Collaboration for Greater Impact
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.
More and more entrepreneurs are entering the social impact space and lack the networking capabilities of seasoned entrepreneurs/businesses.
According to Norwich University Online, in a survey conducted by the State of Social Enterprise, 50 percent of social enterprises earned a profit in the preceding year, and social enterprises were leading the economic recovery.
