BSC Associates take on Ignite Social Innovation Retreat
“Before the retreat, I never thought about what it means to be a social entrepreneur. I just knew I wanted to change the world someway, somehow. Social innovation isn’t just about providing new products or new services; it’s about changing the underlying beliefs and relationships that structure the world around us.”
