The Gazette published a two-part series on the benefits and difficulties of drawing young professionals to our city.
Many of the youth of our nation are interested in making a difference, not just making money. A new term has been coined in recent years to describe the person who uses the skills and techniques of an entrepreneur to build a business or organization, but with a greater goal than just making money or meeting an immediate need: Sociopreneur. One business consultant (see link) says “Sociopreneurs’ prime motivation is to act as change agents for society rather than to generate profits. And unlike the majority of non-profit organisations, their work is targeted not only towards immediate, small-scale effects, but to sweeping, long-term change.”
We believe God would like to draw a whole community of sociopreneurs to our city and use it as a base from which to change the world.
