Social entrepreneurship has been defined as the process of pursuing innovative or sustainable solutions to social problems. Whether it’s in the nonprofit or for profit sector, social entrepreneurship is seen as advancing business for a greater cause—or as some may say, a higher calling.
Do you have an idea that you think could change the world, our society, or at least your neighborhood? Join us to hear how Ryan Keith ’02, founder of Forgotten Voices, channeled his experiences and education to respond to the needs of children orphaned by AIDS in Africa. Leveraging Local Partnerships for Social Change promises to be an engaging event that will offer practical advice for moving ideas from inception to implementation, while inspiring attendees to imagine how their professional ambitions could make a transformative difference.

If you are looking for more information about social entreprenurship, Ryan recommends the book From Concept to Scale: Building Gospel-Minded Organizations as a great, practical resource to launching or enhancing social enterprises. The book is published by Praxis Media, a social entrepreneurship accelerator helping non-profit and for-profit organizations.
This event took place on February 18, 2015 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel in Harrisburg, PA.
