Social Entrepreneurship in Developing Countries

FNIIS (UCPH) and International Debate (CBS) host a seminar with focus on how to develop a sustainable business model that generates profit for the company as well as benefits the communities they are working in. In other words, how to earn money with a good consciousness.

The speakers are successful social entrepreneurs who will give their take on how the private sector can operate within a frame of social responsibilities in developing countries while benefitting the Danish business at the same time.
