Bending the Arc – The Rise of Social Enterprise and Mission based Businesses

March 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Dr. Akhtar Badshah will discuss the rise of social enterprise and mission-based businesses and their impact on society. A new generation of funders are looking at new models of social investments; they also have a different approach to measuring social return on investments; they are utilizing technology extensively; and they view the role of public policy and scale with a new lens.  In his talk Dr. Badshah will cover these issues and provide innovative approaches that are bending the arc of humanity for good.

Dr. Badshah is a seasoned executive with over 30 years of experience in international development and philanthropy, managing Microsoft’s corporate philanthropic program and co-founding a global nonprofit for social enterprise, the Digital Partners Foundation.  He is currently the Chief Catalyst at Catalytic Innovators Group, distinguished visiting faculty at the University of Washington, and the curator of Accelerating Social Transformation and a co-author of Technology at the Margins: How IT Meets the Needs of Emerging Markets.
