Socialpreneurship – What is it?

Do you know what a “socialpreneur” is? Are you one?

A Socialpreneur is an entrepreneur who designs or structures their business around the greater good. This concept was made wildly popular by Blake Mycoskie the Founder of TOMS shoes. He used his business to improve the lives of children in Argentina who had no shoes. Read more about his inspiring story and mission HERE.
