William James Foundation’s 2012 Social Entrepreneurship Gathering

Planting Empowerment is honored to participate in the William James Foundation’s annual gathering this Friday held at the World Resources Institute in Washington, DC.

We’ll be speaking on the “Launching and running a business across continents” panel, which explores how social businesses operate multi-nationally.

Planting Empowerment competed in the WJF’s Social Enterprise Competition in 2007, and has served as a judge for the competition for the past five years.

The William James Foundation connects for-profit social entrepreneurs to industry experts and impact investors to help scale those entrepreneurs' ideas into sustainable ventures.
