Impact Entrepreneur: Let’s End the Social Entrepreneurship Ponzi Scheme | Good Business International Impact Entrepreneur: Let’s End the Social Entrepreneurship Ponzi Scheme | Good Business International by Hotfrog CEO Laurie Lane-Zucker I started my gig in the social entrepreneur space about five years ago after an experienced venture capitalist and board member of a couple social entrepreneur groups rather forcefully insisted to me in a meeting that the digital media project I was incubating in my small nonprofit organization would be far better served as a for-profit social enterprise.
