Kindness Matters (Series I) 
Entrepreneurial Way to Combat Social Exclusion   

To make a living, we succeed by what we get. To make a life, we succeed by what we give. With venture philanthropy, social entrepreneurs take the latter mindset to heart, aiming to create a business which brings social value rather than personal wealth. How does such a business take innovative steps towards generating social impact while ensuring sufficient financial returns for reinvestment and sustainability? Three well-respected social entrepreneurs, dedicated to alleviating the plight of marginalized groups in society, are invited to share their views and experiences. You will be inspired by their passion and compassion!    

Gigi Chao, Fion Leung, David Begbie, William Du
