NGOs and social enterprises embrace similar missions: that is, to solve social problems, but through different means. NGOs serve by providing social services while social enterprises tackle social issues with entrepreneurial means. Would a merger of the two create greater synergy for social good?

Representatives from seven NGOs will candidly share their bitter and sweet of operating a social enterprise. You will hear their key learnings from project planning, to implementation and daily operation, or even the painful decision to close a business. You will get insights on why some succeed while others struggle.
