Social Innovation and the Entrepreneur
D113  Category: Social Innovation    Status: New

The Standford Social Innovation Review had an interesting article (http://bit.ly/cPNrS9) on the relationship between entrepreneurship and social innovation. The author ends with,

"This is not to say that public health and vaccination are unimportant in developing countries—far from it. But in the coming decades, it will be regular entrepreneurs—those who start and grow companies—who will be lauded for their role in improving society. Specific individuals and firms stand behind the technological innovations that make growth possible. Entrepreneurs, it turns out, are good for your health."

In this context of entreprenuers spurring economic growth, which in turns promotes social growth, what are your thoughts? Through promoting the economy and technological advances such as the cellphone, can we better society? Can economic growth bring up a lagging social growth in developing countries?
