The urgency of global concerns such as health inequality, poverty and education demand rapid intervention. The role of social enterprises are key to addressing today’s social challenges and promoting impact-driven innovation designed to create long term societal impact.
Adopting a critical perspective, this talk will explore questions around the creation of value and outline what makes social enterprisers valuable, and how could they contribute to the creation of important services and products to marginalised and disenfranchised communities.
This free in-person lecture is part of the Translational Health Sciences programme.
