Social entrepreneurship will be increasingly important

Kevin Jenkins took part in a panel debate in New York in September, hosted by the Blouin Creative Leadership Forum. He spoke on the increasingly important role that large corporations and business interests have in development and relief initiatives, and outlined the historical development from philanthropy, to corporate social responsibility, to social investment. Part of the future, he suggested, may lie in the formation by corporates and humanitarian groups of 'corporate social ventures' to address development and human rights issues of importance to all.
