Social entrepreneurs are using their creativity and expertise to make a difference for humanity, for the environment and for the future. From designing water filtration systems that save lives to wearable technology that tracks health; from innovations in education to online crowd funding sites; from awareness-raising ice bucket challenges to data and mapping systems that track populations and disease; from developing efficient and scalable systems that solve challenges to companies committing to a mission of corporate responsibility and conscious capitalism: technology, design and the entrepreneurial spirit can make the world better. Our panel will discuss innovation for public benefit, business and funding models that make organizations sustainable, and how out-of-the-box thinking makes a difference.
