Social entrepreneurship and developing visionary leaders are part of a fast-growing movement that applies business tools to find sustainable solutions to neglected problems at all levels of society – globally as well as in India.
In India alone, over two million social impact businesses are working to develop solutions to the country’s most pressing social and environmental issues, and reports suggest that more than 50 percent of these businesses are understaffed, leaving an opportunity for businesses to double their impact. – as quoted on YourStory’ interview with Mandeep.
