Every day Cindy Cooper is unleashing the promise of business for social impact. As Co-Founder and Director of Impact Entrepreneurs at Portland State University, Cindy teaches entrepreneurship and design as they relate to social change. She has guided countless students and professionals to align their purpose with their career and helped many aspiring entrepreneurs launch new social ventures.

In this podcast Cindy speaks with Jackie Babicky, an author and instructor who has worked with small business entrepreneurs for over 30 years. Together Jackie and Cindy explore questions like: Who is a social entrepreneur? What’s the difference between an entrepreneur and a social entrepreneur? and What’s an Encore career?
