How can we create social impact? How can we identify a social problem where we can make a difference? How can we mobilize resources to create social change? And how do we define and measure that social change?
In this session, Professor Stephan Chambers discusses these questions and more and how they relate to new institutions, organizations and mechanisms that aim to create significant social change. He will explore how social entrepreneurs recognize opportunities, how they mobilize resources, how they often use commercial mechanisms for the public good, and how they should always work in partnership with those they seek to help.
