This month in the Cornerstone Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking (JSFB), we take an in-depth look into the world of “Entrepreneurship.” We celebrate the creative, inspired and dauntless innovators who have the potential to drive disruptive change across industry sectors, and even entire markets. We start with the Cornerstone research team examining drivers of job creation and consider the establishment of rules around crowd funding to validate that practice as a viable investment and capital formation tool.
Join us as featured voices from leading private sector companies – eBay’s Lauren Moore, Ben & Jerry’s Jostein Solheim and Michael Fuerst of Novartis – share their tales of innovation, open source excellence and progress that are shaping large enterprises. And learn how up-and-comers saving farmlands, improving supply chains and incentivizing “positive impact” behaviors, are seeking to become the sustainable standouts of tomorrow.
