Doing good can also mean doing well.
That oft-heard refrain is one that StartUP FIU has taken seriously. The business-development initiative offers entrepreneurs in a variety of industries the opportunity to research and scale up their companies–and that includes helping individuals and organizations with a decided interest in social entrepreneurship.
A social entrepreneur is defined as someone who pursues novel applications that have the potential to solve community-based problems. Such individuals are willing to take on the risk and effort to create positive changes in society through their work. Not driven solely by the bottom line, they see contributing to the greater good as part of the reward.
