Global Social Entrepreneurship
As the disparity between those that ‘have’ and those that ‘have not’ continues to grow wider, the use of social solutions don’t seem to have the sustainability and true scalability the world is in need of. As we witness the infant / child mortality rate in Africa, East Asia and other parts of the world go up, it seems we are at a loss as to how best offer help. It saddens us to remain still and do nothing. There are numerous respected foundations, such as the UN, the WHO & many others giving billions of dollars to these countries. Sadly, there is so much more to be done.
We suggest a new model. A new model that is founded in parity. A new model that will drive the global supply chain to those parts of the world that are living in abject poverty. It will be a lot of hard work but it starts, not with another NGO, but by creating a true business model that allows multiple supply chain contracts to happen between disadvantaged parts of the world and the full global economy. We feel it is important for our business leaders to be social entrepreneurs. In addition to generating profits, we need to drive projects that include a global supply chain and create sustainable business models in poor economies.
In order for parity to exist an economy must have a strong healthcare and education model at its foundation. We encourage business leader’s to take responsibility in helping to build and support a baseline education and healthcare access model in those countries that need it most.
