Not all entrepreneurs focus solely on making massive amounts of money for themselves - some want to use their skills to leave the world in a better place.    We have put together a world-class panel of social entrepreneurs in San Diego who are working to make a difference in people’s lives and positive change in the world.  This panel will explore the world of social entrepreneurship - how to get involved in the field, what to do if you have a social enterprise idea, how to get support for your idea, and how and when to seek funding.

Participants will learn different approaches to social entrepreneurship including  market-driven (double and triple bottom line techniques) as well as affecting policy or political  change plus they will review trends in the industry and unique approaches they are observing throughout the world.
