Entrepreneurs: Social Entrepreneurship Panel
iTunes U Course: Academy of Achievement: Entrepreneurs
Lecture (iTunes): Social Entrepreneurship Panel
I made the mistake of initially thinking that this discussion was going to be related to social media. Fortunately I kept listening and found the discussion enlightening. Wendy Kopp discusses her Teach for America organization, how she founded it and how she keep s the organization moving forward.
Mike Feinberg got his start with Teach for America and turned around and founded his Knowledge is Power Program "KIPP". Now in over 100 schools across 20 states. This is a really exciting program and produce some fantastic, measurable results.
