    Social Entrepreneurship Day 2008


    More than 150 people attended the Social Entrepreneurship Day panel, which was sponsored by SSIR and the Stanford Graduate School of Business's Center for Social Innovation. The second annual Stanford University event, held February 24, brought a diverse, standing-room-only crowd and featured a lively discussion on ways to fund social enterprises, moderated by Kriss Deiglmeier, Executive Director of the Center for Social Innovation. Panelists included dynamic social sector leaders Jenny Shilling Stein ( Draper Richards Foundation), Jessica Jackley Flannery (Kiva.org), Amy Clark ( Ashoka), and Suzanne McKechnie Klahr (BUILD).

    At the end of the panel, Deiglmeier opened the forum to the audience members, who had many questions about what the process of funding social enterprises entails. One aspiring entrepreneur asked, "At what stage do the funders come in when funding a social venture and what are they looking for?"
