Companies that make employees feel a part of something greater than themselves are attracting top talent. Research reveals that money is not the primary motivator for employees and statistics show employment at social enterprises has gone up by double digits over last two years.

She defines the terms social entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurship, and talks about the promising phenomena of top talents using their abilities and entrepreneurial drive to solve social problems to make real change and transform the nature of business.
