SDForum Awards Part 2: Reid Hoffman And Creating Sustainable Social Enterprises

Posted by Tom Foremski - June 25, 2010

The introductions at this year's SDForum Awards were so over the top with long lists of incredible virtues that I fully expected Mahatma Ghandi or St. Francis of Assisi to mount the podium and collect an award. I preferred the traditional SDForum approach of a gentle roasting of the award winner.

Here is Reid Hoffman talking about a subject dear to my heart, creating sustainable social enterprises. It's not a "non-profit" approach but what Muhammad Yunus, the Nobel Peace prize winner, would call a "not-for-loss" venture.

Coming up: Arthur C. Patterson - Accel Partners; Chris Shipley, CEO Guidewire Group; Brent Schlender, Executive Director Techonomy.
