We need social entrepreneurs now, more than ever. Together with the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs, the World Economic Forum, and Yunus Social Business, I have set up and co-led the COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs since April 2020 to mobilize support for social entrepreneurs who are making a difference on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis. The alliance spans 84 leading SocEnt organizations, impacting 90,000 social entrepreneurs serving over 1.9bn people.
