The Responsible Entrepreneur
Responsible entrepreneurs are a special breed, seeking to transform industries and even society itself. They challenge and refine cultural assumptions, laws, regulations, and even the processes of governance. This requires them to do and think far beyond what is usually required of business leaders.
In this Soundview Live webinar, The Responsible Entrepreneur, Carol Sanford offers a blueprint for this new kind of business leadership, describing the means by which any entrepreneur can pursue a higher order of work. Sanford, one of the most trusted names in responsible business development, brings her vast expertise from helping executives and corporations to the entrepreneur looking to launch and scale a venture.
