Social Entrepreneurship = The New Black

Greed is good. Who cares about the rest?

Luckily, that way of thinking is outdated thanks to the rise of social entrepreneurship worldwide. Focusing on the triple bottom line (people, planet, and profit) companies are now looking to create value for all stakeholders ranging from employees, to investors, to their local communities.

Finally, consumers are cherishing brands for their stories, working conditions, fair wages, ethical manufacturing, impact, and quality, instead of their margins and stock price. We want to cherish these companies too, so here are the stories of 5 social entrepreneurs who are impacting our world in a real way.
