Cindy Cooper, co-founder and director of PSU’s Impact Entrepreneurs

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. A social entrepreneur herself, Cindy has now catalyzed a social entrepreneurship movement at Portland State University, including creating an online certificate in social innovation and social entrepreneurship.

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? 

Cindy talks about applying entrepreneurial skills to create social change from local to global, from personal to institutional, and how everyone can be a changemaker.
