For the EVOLution of Business

Building An Inclusive Entrepreneurial Ecosystem: "The Healing Force of Business" Virtual Summit

Episode Summary

What would it look like if Rochester became a model for the most diverse, equitable and inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem in the country? Not only would the entrepreneurs themselves come from a diversity of backgrounds, but the types of businesses they would start and the customers they would serve would also reflect the diversity of our community. Opportunity would be broadly shared and our economy would be more dynamic, robust and resilient too! What would it take to get there?

Episode Notes

Rochester, NY chapter of the global Conscious Capitalism movement working to elevate humanity through business. 

Conscious Capitalism is based on four key tenets:

-Higher Purpose (beyond profit)

-Stakeholder Orientation (balancing the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, investors, society and the environment, rather than prioritizing stockholders)

-Conscious Leadership (servant leaders that focus on we rather than me, keeping the organization focused on living its purpose)

-Conscious Culture (fosters love and care and focuses on the holistic wellbeing of employees)

Our mission is to be students and teachers practicing Conscious Capitalism with the belief that these principles empower and advance human flourishing.
