Business owners and entrepreneurs alike are facing all kinds of challenges as result of the down economy. The New Jersey Social Entrepreneurship Summit, being held Wednesday at the Rutgers campus in Newark will help businesses, nonprofits, educators, and civic leaders learn how to navigate the rocky waters using a model for entrepreneurship gaining traction in the private and public sector.
“Social entrepreneurship is a form of entrepreneurship that integrates social goals and social or environmental problem solving into its core business model,” the summit website reads.
“The objective of the summit is to raise the profile of social entrepreneurship in New Jersey by bringing leaders of the social sector and entrepreneurs who address social and environmental problems in their businesses together to learn from and support each other,” summit spokeswoman Christene Carr said.
An ongoing Twitter discussion will feature the hashtag #NJSocEnt. The summit's Youtube page will post videos throughout the day.
