Incubating social enterprises and executing on sustainable solutions: Ending modern slavery
UTS and BUiLD are hosting a talk by well known American social entrepreneur David Batstone. It should be a great event for those familiar with and new to the concept of social enterprise.
Dr David Batstone is the President, Co-founder, and Fearless Leader of Not For Sale (opens an external site). His “tripolar” background in education, investment banking and journalism give David the experience and vision to tackle human trafficking from every angle and drive the organisation forward at an unprecedented pace.
David has authored five books, the two most recent being Not For Sale (HarperOne) and Saving the Corporate Soul (Jossey-Bass). He is the recipient of two US national journalist awards, and was named National Endowment for the Humanities Chair at the University of San Francisco for his work in technology and ethics. He is currently a professor in the School of Management at the University of San Francisco.
Today David leads the strategic and financial opportunities at Not For Sale, guides the team towards the organisational mission.
Not For Sale creates tools that engage business, government, and grassroots in order to incubate and grow social enterprises to benefit enslaved and vulnerable communities. David will discuss the genesis of this new approach, the methodology behind it, and how this translates to the Australian, and wider Asia Pacific context.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear from David, a pioneer in social entrepreneurship.
