      Social Entrepreneurship: Purpose, Passion & Impact Dr. Lisa Fournier, Lenoir-Rhyne University Dr. Lisa Fournier’s business journey began when she was a college undergraduate at Western Carolina University. After growing and selling her first business in imprinted sportswear in the late 1990s, she was hired as an implementer in several emerging-growth companies during the era and throughout the 2000s. In 2013, she started a benefit corporation to better understand how they operate, and to pass those strategies on to those who desire to pursue a path of social entrepreneurship.    FREE Keynote at Tenacious Tuesdays on November 7, 3:00-5:00pm at Pack’s Tavern You know in your heart you have to make a difference. But, putting money in the bank for payroll is more pressing than the notion of your business “doing good” and scaling up. You wonder, “Is it even possible to ‘do good’ and make money at the same time?” Yes, It is possible in social entrepreneurship to make this happen! This month we’ll explore social entrepreneurship and the strategies and mindset on how to make this kind of business grow. By the end of the month, you will learn how-to start a social enterprise, apply for a B-Corp Certification, and lead an impact business. Live out your purpose-passion-impact and make a difference!
