#think Social Futures: From social movement to social market
Markets are not a naturally occurring form. They are built. And they often emerge in the form of social movements, operating between industries, addressing weak points and solving frustrations with current systems. But what does this take? How do such movements and markets gain legitimacy, position and power? How do they achieve scale?
Our presenters will discuss the past, present and future of entrepreneurial movements such as social entrepreneurship, the collaborative economy and impact investing. Some of the questions we’ll address are:
- Where did these movements come from?
- Who were the entrepreneurial rebels?
- What was the tipping point?
- What about scale?
