They are unusual businesspeople – innovative and creative. And they want much more than just growth and profit: social entrepreneurs are working to make the world a better place.
Their public-spirited goals combine financial know-how with a vision. What differentiates a social entrepreneur from other businesspeople is the ability to pursue social projects and realise new ideas – and ideally make money with them.
Increasingly, social entrepreneurs are filling in the gaps and solving the problems that governments don’t address. And they aren’t just doing it in what is still called the developing world, but in Germany as well.
In cooperation with the Schwab Foundation, which honours social entrepreneurs all over the world, you can get to know these idealistic businesspeople on GLOBAL 3000. Social entrepreneurs – building links between communities and finance.
