Veronika Scott – what kind of “entrepreneur” is she?

Veronika Scott

Here’s a link to a Detroit Free Press story about Veronika Scott and her EMPWR coats that she’s making in Detroit. As I mentioned in class on Tuesday, the coats/sleeping bags themselves are not only helping the homeless, but her factory is employing and training women who previously lacked job skills. (I was particularly thrilled to read about her partnerships with General Motors and Carhartt.)

We can be cynical (and it’s usually wise to be skeptical),┬ábut if we ask more of people – whether in business or outside of it – they often amaze us with what they’re willing and able to do!
