Billicon Valley Presents: Michael Strong

Thursday, 13 October, 2016

Michael Strong, social entrepreneur, will speak at Saint Louis University at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, in the Sinquefield Stateroom in DuBourg Hall. 

In his speech, "How Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalists Can Eliminate Global Poverty," Strong will ask attendees to consider what could happen if the distinction between business and doing good vanished. What if all those who engaged in business were committed to a deeper purpose, and all those committed to doing good were entrepreneurial and enterprising?  

Strong is the co-founder (with John Mackey, CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods) of Freedom Lights Our World (FLOW), a non-profit dedicated to "liberating the entrepreneurial spirit for good," that has spawned programs on Peace through Commerce, Accelerating Women Entrepreneurs, and Conscious Capitalism.

He is also the lead author of Be the Solution: How Entrepreneurs and Conscious Capitalists Can Solve All the World's Problems, along with contributing authors John Mackey, Muhammad Yunus, Hernando de Soto, Don Beck and others.

Come and imagine how YOU can “be the solution” to making the world a better place!
