COLUMBIA, MD, March 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society‚EUR s most pressing social problems. What does it take to be one, and what are the challenges? Students from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland will have the opportunity to ask greeNEWit Co-Founder Josh Notes at the Creating Value Social Enterprise Symposium on March 1, 2013 at the Stamp Student Union.
Notes is one of five social entrepreneurs who are tackling issues ranging from education to the environment. He will be leading the "Storytellers: From the Diaries of Social Entrepreneurs" session from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. along with Marisa Stubbs, founder of Food for Life, Nick Martin, co-founder and president of TechChange, Natalia Oberti Noguera, founder & ceo of Pipeline Fellowship and Darius Graham, co-founder of DC Social Innovation Project.
This year‚EUR s theme, ‚EURúHere and Now‚EURĚ, is a call to action for students to become more informed, motivated and active participants in everyday life. With today‚EUR s complex challenges, we don‚EUR t have the luxury to sit and wait for solutions. Problem solving begins with each of us, whether as individuals or organizations, and it must begin now.
Unlike any other event on the University of Maryland campus, the Symposium explores the role of business in creating economic prosperity and lasting social and environmental change. From sustainability to social entrepreneurship, the Social Enterprise Symposium helps connect students with thought leaders who are using the tools of business to change the world. The Symposium features two keynotes, a series of breakout sessions and workshops, an annual No Limits Social Impact Pitch Competition and an evening networking reception.
