Social Entrepreneurship: Model or method?

Tuesday 9 May 2000
5.30pm
Old Theatre, LSE, Old Building, Houghton Street, WC

Who and what are social entrepreneurs?

In a public lecture next Tuesday, 9 May, Professor Henrietta Moore, Professor of Social Anthropology at LSE, will be discussing the success and failures of social entrepreneurship, drawing on comparative material from the UK, Europe and Canada.

She believes that social entrepreneurs are an emerging group in society. Their aim is to demonstrate how business skills can contribute to regeneration and development.

The lecture will consider how entrepreneurship can contribute to certain sections of the UK economy, and how its role combating social exclusion and developing social capital might evolve in the future.

The lecture is free and takes place at 5.30pm on Tuesday 9 May in the Old Theatre, LSE, Old Building, Houghton Street, WC.
