Research Title: Catalyzing Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Description: This project will examine and interview social entrepreneurs and innovators in the NYC area as well as internationally. Effective social change and its long-term impact rely on fundamentally new approaches and methods that are scalable and sustainable, with the ability to influence system-changing solutions – known as ‘catalytic innovations’, a form of disruptive innovation. Our study will investigate the types of catalytic innovations that social entrepreneurs and innovators create and implement for both economic and social impact.
