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 Good Company Ventures, Blake Janelle, 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:

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