Ashoka South Florida in the Miami Herald
Many reasons why I love this article, but the main one: it portrays a network of entrepreneurs working to achieve social impact, regardless of whether they are “social entrepreneurs” or “business entrepreneurs”.
Regardless of the for-profit or not-for-profit. Yes, there are differences among them. Yes, some may achieve higher impact than others. Yes, a social enterprise is a different animal than a system-change innovation that transforms a whole industry. But we strongly believe that the ultimate bottom line for scaling social impact is increasing the number of changemakers in society, helping everyone see their own role as agents of change. In South Florida, Ashoka is building a network that is moving that idea forward, involving people coming from the business sector, to media, to youth, to foundations.
Our own Lorena Garcia is weaving those networks and paving the way for a community of changemakers to transform Miami and the world. And the Miami Herald is writing about it!
