How Impact Entrepreneurship Change the World
We are living in a fast-paced environment. We have access to almost every new thing today like Facebook, smartphones, and computers etc. These products are created by noted Entrepreneurs with the vision of solving problems.
Impact entrepreneurs are few among them, who are not just trying to sell their products or services, in fact, they are making it a point that their business should tackle the causes and symptoms of deepening inequality in the society. There are several ways they do it such as by creating quality jobs, by inventing new things, by expanding affordable access to vital goods and services for the masses, by extending quality health care, by advancing the economic participation of underrepresented groups, and so on so forth.
All in all, impact entrepreneurs help in accelerating the progress and growth, they all share one goal in common: “empowering as many people as possible and contribute to the sustainable economic growth.” Here are few examples:
