The Buzz 2-18-11
Here's our quick read on the top tweets, news, and buzz circulating in the field of social entrepreneurship and changemaking this week. What's got you talking?
- A study by a professor at Virginia’s Darden School of Business reveals fascinating differences between the way corporate executives and entrepreneurs approach ideas and problems. We’re curious when and how the shift between these two paths actually occurs. http://ht.ly/3VKpz
- An up close and personal look at the elation, fears, dreams, and tears that accompany anyone on the entrepreneur’s path. Eerily familiar and beautifully compiled. If you haven’t already, take a few minutes to watch this short documentary: http://ht.ly/3Z6GJ
- Teach For America just celebrated 20 years and 20,000 alumni. Now that’s big. Plus, a Harvard study finds that TFA produces more education entrepreneurs than any other organization out there. That’s even bigger. http://ht.ly/3ZCu1
- Small and growing business entrepreneurs are transforming the developing world. Randall Kempner is the head of the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs—so he should know. http://ht.ly/3Zin7
- Find yourself in too many meetings that take too much time and take away all the fun? Work with purpose—stop holding meetings and start holding conversations. A few basic changes could stimulate innovation and creativity like you’ve never imagined. http://ht.ly/3WZuG
- Echoing Green Fellow Josh Nesbit got a few minutes on Good Morning America this week. Every year, 500,000 phones are discarded in America. Donate yours to Hope Phones and you can play a part in global health solutions. Now, that’s not too hard, right? http://ht.ly/3X6Fr
