Starting a social impact startup has become a become an increasingly popular trend among new businesses.  During this session co-hosted by Team Austin, you'll hear from 4 Austin social impact entrepreneurs about their experience of incorporating a social mission as a key component in their for-profit business model. Each guest speaker will be invited to answer three key questions - 1) How are they creating impact through their business, 2) How has your mission evolved since you started?, and 3) Share one resource you need that community doesn’t have. You'll also learn how they got started and why why they chose to be a social impact startup as well as the benefits and drawbacks of this approach.
