13th ANNUAL SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP CONFERENCE
USC MARSHALL - Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship - Make meaning, make money and move the world to a better place.Professor Mike Caslin will be presenting GCSEN Foundation’s paper on behalf of its Social Entrepreneurship Institute’s Members listed below for “Organizing the Social Enterprise from Startup to Transformative Scale”. A rigorous prac-ademic approach (practitioner focused practical tools supported by academic strength) will be explored. The paper was co-authored by practitioners and professors which include:
· Mike Caslin - CEO, Adjunct Professor at GCSEN Foundation,
Babson College Executive Education
· Len Green - Featured Lecture, Babson College
· Mary Kate Naatus Ph.D. - Professor, St. Peter’s University
· Nancy Scott Ph.D. -Professor, Wheaton College
· Joseph Szocik- Research and Innovation, GCSEN

Over the years, the conference has hosted other experts in the field which include Nobel Laureates Muhammad Yunus and Michael Spence as well as Bill Drayton, Jed Emerson, Jacqueline Novogratz, Andrew Kassoy, Susan Davis, Greg Dees, David Bornstein, Cheryl Dorsey, Linda Rottenberg, Mark Kramer, Jason Saul, Billy Shore, Scott Harrison, Tom Szaky, Darell Hammond, Scott Barrie, Laura Callanan, Brian Trelstad, Sara Olsen, and Tris Lumley among others.

This confluence of the leading thought leaders, scholars and social entrepreneurs will further accelerate the growth and development in the theory and research in the transformative field of social entrepreneurship.

Professor Caslin believes that, “Social Entrepreneurship offers the best way forward toward peace and prosperity. Powered by Millennial college and graduate students and adult learners and doers, supported by outstanding faculty and impact investors and visionary philanthropists The DDS Foundation, Sobrato-Brisson Trust of Silicon Valley Community Foundation and The Lois and Len Green Foundation, we are supporting an emerging and powerful, market-based transformative force for local economies and beyond. We at GCSEN Foundation believe this will be the most powerful, practical and proven wealth creating, poverty reducing, local economy building force for good to be seen in the Millennial driven economy in the decades to come”.

This conference was made possible by the bold and visionary leadership of the conference’s co-directors Jill R. Kickul and Sophie Bacq. Jill is the Founding Director of the Annual Conference on Social Entrepreneurship and has a bestselling book, Understanding Social Entrepreneurship: The Relentless Pursuit of Mission in an Ever Changing World. Sophie is an Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship & Innovation at Northeastern University in Boston, where she teaches social entrepreneurship and microfinance at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
