Shwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship

Pamela Hartigan, the Managing Director of the Shwab Foundation for Social Entreprenreurship, give a presentation about how the foundation supports some of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs.

The Shwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship is founded by Klaus Schwab, President and Founder of the World Economic Forum. It’s primary purpose is to build a network of the most outstanding social entrepreneurs and influence the world leaders with the alternative solutions for the world problems. It’s a pretty new initiative, but it’s getting some high profile media exposure and starting to create the awareness of the general public.

Pamela went through the selection process and gave the stories of the well known social entrepreneurs. She mentioned to create employment opportunities for the unemployed is critical as a social entrepreneurial endeavor – which is my project all about.
