Social Entrepreneurship and Technology: How can we use it better?

Business & Professional

Join our expert panel for a discussion on the best and worst tech ideas in social entrepreneurship.

Join our expert panel for a discussion on the best and worst tech ideas in social entrepreneurship and learn more about the Marshall Institute's teaching programmes, including our flagship Executive Master's in Social Business and Entrepreneurship.

Followed by drinks and networking.

Technology, in all its manifestations, has radically transformed society over the last two hundred years and this transformation is set to accelerate. Some of the most significant opportunities for social entrepreneurs will arise as a result of these emerging capabilities which promise to revolutionise public health, personal finance, personal protection and many other aspects of our lives. But some of the most significant threats to human flourishing will occur as a result of these very same technologies.
