Why I Bet on Social Entrepreneurship over Corporate Sustainability | Rich Brubaker – Episode 004

In this episode, I speak to the fact that while corporate social responsibility, and corporate sustainability, have been hot topics that have produced a lot of really interesting programs, the biggest opportunities for fixing the problems we face will be landed by social entrepreneurs.

Individuals, and organizations, who have a mission for change, can build a platform that actually delivers a solution to the environmental, social, or economic problem faced.

 

 

About Me:
Driven by the belief that change begins with a single step, I’ve spent the last 15 years in Asia working to engage, inspire, and equip those around him to understand their power to leverage innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership to solve “the big” challenges cities face.

Currently, as the Managing Director of Collective Responsibility, Executive Director of HandsOn China, and a former Adjunct Professor of Sustainability at the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), I’m focused on building platforms that promote long term organizational capacity to address the economic, environmental, and social hurdles that China faces as the country’s economic growth accelerates.

One Response to Why I Bet on Social Entrepreneurship over Corporate Sustainability | Rich Brubaker – Episode 004

  1. Excellent insight, Rich. I think there is a lot to what you’ve said. The very large, entrenched organizations need to move mountains to make meaningful impact in an accelerated timeframe. Social entrepreneurs tunnel through the mountains to find workable, scalable solutions that don’t have all the baggage of a yesteryear’s supply chain. I salute the bravery and persistence of today’s social entrepreneurs.
