The theme for the Freetown Pitch Night June 6th event is “Social Entrepreneurship”.

The World Economic Forum describes Social Entrepreneurship as “A term that captures a unique approach to economic and social problems, an approach that cuts across sectors and disciplines grounded in certain values and processes that are common to each social entrepreneur, independent of whether his/ her area of focus has been education, health, welfare reform, human rights, workers’ rights, environment, economic development, agriculture, etc., or whether the organizations they set up are non-profit or for-profit entities”.

Are you using market principles and forces to meet poverty alleviation goals?

Are you innovating by finding a new product, a new service, or a new approach to a social problem?
