Can entrepreneurs solve global problems?

For the past five years, the Center for Social Entrepreneurship at Middlebury College has pioneered a new kind of entrepreneur: those whose business is the world’s problems. According to CSE, social entrepreneurs are “individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. They are ambitious and persistent, tackling major social issues and offering new ideas for wide-scale change.” CSE director Jon Isham discusses how it works.
