Posted by on March 22, 2010

Our next Philly Net Tuesday will be at the Jenkins Law Library, 833 Chestnut Street (please see directions below), starting at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, April 6.

Join us for a fascinating discussion featuring Garrett Melby, CEO of GoodCompany Ventures, Blake Jennelle, founder of Missioneurs, other local social entrepreneurs and you!

Social Entrepreneur (n.): someone who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a venture to make social change.

We will discuss:

o What does social entrepreneurship have to do with the social web?
o How is new web technology and social entrepreneurship revolutionizing the way change happens?
o How can the principles of social entrepreneurship be applied to nonprofits?
o What’s happening locally, including examples of local social enterprises and ways to get more involved.
