Business FOR Social Change Mini-Conference. #SocEntLB

For those of you in Beirut!  Go check out AltCity.Me’s Business FOR Social Change Mini-Conference!  RSVP on Facebook  

The goal of the Mini-Conference is to build greater understanding of the field of social entrepreneurship, but also to speak about you, and your ideas for the next most successful social venture in Lebanon and the region. This one-day mini-conference is dedicated to practical workshops, discussions, and group problem-solving activities around these key concepts. 

The #SocEntLB Mini-Conference will be light, fun, highly interactive, very practical (geared towards people implementing, or thinking of implementing, a for-profit social impact venture), and fun! 

» This event is held as part of the GEW (Global Entrepreneurship Week) in Lebanon series of events, Nov 14-26, organized in collaboration with dozens of great organizations all around Lebanon. 
More details and the full GEW schedule online at <www.gewlebanon.org>.
