We are back from our Annual Meeting in Davos. Discussions on the future of capitalism and the Eurozone along with the big name participants dominated media headlines. But what many did not cover is what went on behind the scenes, and the participants who may not have such big names, but are doing big things. Today’s podcast is dedicated to some of those participants, the often unsung heroes who are merging business with doing good: Social Entrepreneurs. We hear from Mel Young, the founder of the Homeless World Cup; Eli Beer, who founded an organization that provides lifesaving medical assistance before the ambulance arrives after an accident; and Wendy Kopp, who has made it her mission to bring education to as many people in the world as possible.
