Talk session on Social Entrepreneurship in Emerging Markets


Event On : 06 Aug 2018

iLEAD organized a scintillating session on one of the most burning issues of modern times. The issue was Social Entrepreneurship in Emerging Markets. The talk session was mentored by Cynthia Helen. Cynthia is globally recognized social entrepreneur, writer- producer-director, technologist and international speaker. Cynthia is also the founder and CEO of SMPLCT Lab. She also served as a chapter leader of New York Women Social Entrepreneurs. She enlightened the student of iLEAD about the emergence of social entrepreneurship and its interesting dynamics in the complex emerging markets. She focused on the fact that social entrepreneurship is not at all a new phenomena in the social history of mankind. Social entrepreneurship has been intensively developing in all regions of world including the emerging markets. This major form of social resource utilization and human development is seeking to find alternative solutions to world most complex and vicious socio- economic problems. There is also lack of unified definition, boundaries and forms of social entrepreneurship. She even talked about the difference of the emerging markets from the markets of the developed countries. The understanding, drivers and context of social entrepreneurship creates the real difference of perception in different countries. Development of empirical research which is not bounded to single case studies but based on gathering and analyzing data can make real practical contribution. Revealing the historical and institutional aspects of social entrepreneurship enhances the comparative analysis across the countries.
