CCaSS team talks about social entrepreneurship
CCaSS Manager Brenda B. Estonanto together with Associates Kerby Z. Panaligan and Ryan Kenneth L. Lim discussed the basics of how social enterprises work. Among the topics they covered were the meaning of social entrepreneurship, the difference between social enterprises (SEs) and non-government organizations (NGOs) and non-profit organizations (NPOs), examples of local SEs and how they work, how EY supports SEs, and how SGVeans can individually support SEs.
