  1. 1. SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN A WAR ZONE SCOTT GILMORE WILL DISCUSS HOW SOCIAL-MINDED ENTREPRENEURS CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN WAR ZONES. WHILE THE RISKS AND THE COMPLEXITIES ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN WORKING IN A DOMESTIC ENVIRONMENT, THE REWARDS AND THE IMPACT ARE MUCH HIGHER, TOO. THE PRESENTATION WILL HIGHLIGHT THE WORK OF RORY STEW- ART AND THE TURQUOISE MOUNTAIN FOUNDATION, THE ALTAI GROUP, AND PEACE DIVIDEND TRUST. EACH EXAMPLE IS OF HOW BUSINESS-MINDED ENTREPRENEURS CHOSE TO WORK IN AFGHANISTAN, WEDNESDAY IN THE MIDST OF A WAR, AND WERE SUCCESSFUL IN IMPROVING THE LIVES OF AFGHANS.
