This Wednesday is an event for anyone interested in social entrepreneurship, social change, and building companies whose profits help society profit.

Umar Haque, the author of The New Capitalist Manifesto, will join us remotely from London. Scott Edward Anderson of Green Skeptic will moderate a panel of local community leaders.

About New Capitalism
In The New Capitalist Manifesto, Umar Haque advocates a new set of ideals:

  • Renewal - Use resources sustainably to maximize efficiencies,
  • Democracy - Allocate resources democratically to foster organizational agility,
  • Peace - Practice economic non-violence in business,
  • Equity - Create industries that make the least well off better off, and
  • Meaning - Generate payoffs that tangibly improve quality of life. Yes, adopting these ideals requires bold and sustained changes.
