Social impact through entrepreneurial action—this is a concept that is changing the model for charitable work in many areas.
BCG has long been at the forefront of this movement, having partnered with the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship since 2005 to recognize and support entrepreneurs around the world who truly want to make a difference.
The monumental challenges of today's economic and social problems require unique approaches to solve them.
