According to socialpreneur and startup investor Tey Por Yee, or better known as Larry Tey, Socialpreneurs are folks who pay attention to the world around them. They recognize a need in their community or in society as a whole and then seek out ways to feed this need while still being able to turn a profit.
In a world that often thinks of big businesses as self-serving profit centric bad people, companies are looking for ways to remove the stigma and reach out to their communities and the world.
Socialpreneurs change the way we look at our company makeup, they force us to realize that sometimes business just has to be about something more than the bottom line. These leaders are establishing a moral compass for their companies and consumers are paying attention.
