Malloy-Social Enterprise Lecture Series: Venture Creation by Social Businesses
101 Churchill Hall
15 November 2012 - 16 November 2012
For more information:
6 pm - 7:15 pm Hosted by: Social Enterprise Institute & The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Group. Sponsored by: D’Amore McKim-School of Business, on behalf of Jim Malloy. In 2010, Dave Spandorfer and Mike Burnstein founded Janji to help raise awareness and fund relief for the global food and water crisis through sports apparel. As avid runners, Spandorfer and Burnstein wanted to help runners give back, not solely through charitable races, but each and every time they run. Janji, which means “promise” in Malay, has incorporated the “buy one, give one model”, much like TOM’s apparel and Warby Parker eyewear into its social business platform. Spandorfer and Burnstein will discuss their experiences as relatively young entrepreneurs starting a social business and their motivations for doing well by doing good. Please RSVP for this event.
