“Make Your Start-Up Good: How to Manage, Scale and Found Your Social Enterprise” | 03.27.14

A report from the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA found that 41.2% of millennials are interested in starting their own business.  Additionally, more than half of millennials, or individuals born after January of 1982, believe that business, more than any other area of society, will achieve the greatest impact in solving society’s biggest challenges.   These statistics challenge the media’s assumption that millennials are self-serving and lazy, and prove that young people are motivated to create change through entrepreneurial endeavors.  Capital Cause convened thought leaders to discuss this important topic, and to give practical advice on how young people can found their own organizations with a social good mission!

Thought Leaders:

  • Vikki Frank; Senior Adviser, The William James Foundation
  • Kat Calvin; DC Young Entrepreneurs
  • Ted Archer; Senior Director, DC Department of Small and Local Business Development
