Entrepreneurs are making important changes in global societies. They are developing new products and services and generating billions of pounds worth of profits. But as the world changes, so does the work of entrepreneurs.

Large corporations are working alongside smaller, grass roots organizations to reach the less privileged and entrepreneurs are not just focusing on profit, but their corporate social responsibility. We now even see entrepreneurship thriving in post-conflict societies.
