If the past year has proved anything about business, it’s that traditional corporations focused solely on profit and isolated invention will fail. It’s time a social movement for change focused its efforts on business by demanding that they look beyond products and services by adding value to the communities that need it most. A new generation of entrepreneurs is stepping in to demand that businesses use the most innovative and creative solutions to make a meaningful impact for social change.
In this episode of design mind ON AIR we talk with Umair Haque, Director of the Havas Media Lab, founder of Bubblegeneration, and a writer for the Harvard Business Review, about how a new generation of social entrepreneurs is changing traditional institutions from the inside. Umair highlights the organizations that are providing ground breaking business models in order to create true social currency.
