This article harkens back to the Pozen article we read during our first week of class and also relates to our class projects. The article introduces an Australian filmmaker who is creating a documentary on social entrepreneurship called “The New Breed“. He follows the journey of three social entrepreneurs as they use principles of entrepreneurship to take on major social issues around the globe. From his experience filming the documentary, the filmmaker reached the conclusion that, “[i]t’s easy to sit on the sidelines and criticize social entrepreneurs for the work they’re doing, but I think that’s mainly an excuse for not acting.” The documentary is set to be released this summer.
I am very interested is seeing how this film compares/contrasts with Poverty, Inc.
