Social Entrepreneurship Magazine | Advice on How to Start a Social Enterprise

The eighth issue of Rank & File Magazine examines what the word “give” means for the social entrepreneur.

How should heart and brain be combined? When does it affect our business strategy? Several social entrepreneurs will share their definition of the word “give” and explore how shifting their mindsets are leading toward greater social impact through mutually-beneficial giving.
