Innovating, Inspiring, Impacting

Social Entrepreneurs-in-training want to make a difference and a living!

What comes to mind when you hear the term Social Entrepreneur? Think about it for a few more seconds and imagine what the world would look like if we all played our part in bringing about positive, sustainable change!


Social Entrepreneurs are persons with creative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. What this means, is that rather than leaving societal needs to the government or business sectors, Social Entrepreneurs find what is not working and solve the problem by changing the system, spreading the solution, and persuading entire societies to take new leaps.  Scott McCoy and Drew Stelljes  are Social Entrepreneurs-in-training who want to make a difference as well as make a living. In this video, they tell us what Social Entrepreneurship mean to them.


JN Foundation will be launching two innovative projects in the coming months – one tackling social business as a solution to employment and societal issues; and the other is a tool to allow growth in the micro-enterprise sector! Stay tuned!
