Social Innovation refers to strategies, concepts or ideas that are aimed at strengthening civil society and making the world in which we live a better place for society broadly.  There are many forms of social innovation with many goals.  My interest is particularly in two areas of social innovation.  The first is the role that corporations can play in being better citizens, showing better stewardship for their world.  The second is in the practice of social entrepreneurship— that is, entrepreneurial activities aimed more so at making the world a better place than making the entrepreneur rich.

What It Does

Using a tool called The Virtue Matrix, help corporations how they can be better citizens in ways that further their long term competitiveness and proactively avoid attack by activists.
