Social Entrepreneurship

What is social entrepreneurship? Wikipedia defines social entrepreneurship as being the attempt to draw upon business techniques to find solutions to social problems.

  Two of the biggest social problems we have today are xenophobia and jobs. Sometimes the two are connected, sometimes not. But as we build to the Platinum Pias Awards on Monday March 21st, two of the videos we have on the page today relate directly and indirectly to these problems.
    Jobs. Not everyone has one. It is the social cause of "Celebrity Entrepreneurship: Youth Empowerment" to change that. Part 1 of the documentary will have its world premiere at the Platinum Pias Awards and the sequence to the left will be a part of that. The idea is that if you do not have a job then you can create one with entrepreneurship.

If you are subscribed to our newsletter then you know that Ann Mahony, featured briefly in the video to the right, is the first Platinum Pia nominee for the 2016 Pias. She was famously at the Peekskill Riots in 1949 to see Paul Robeson, a social entrepreneur. Robeson was a great fighter of xenophobia.

And you can show your support for Ann Mahony by signing up for the NYC Make a Difference Newsletter at Entertainment Entrepreneurship, then sending a testimonial to the email you'll find on the subscribe completed page. Judges do factor in "people's choice" into the final decision criteria.
