Keynote Sponsored by Entrepreneurship@DU: Profit: The Byproduct of Purpose

Can profit and purpose coexist? Modern businesses blur the lines between these historically distinct principles. As customers increasingly choose to support companies driven by purpose, investors seek to grow companies motivated beyond a singular focus on profit. As a result, entrepreneurs focused on solving social problems have an emerging investor landscape to explore for partnerships and support.

During this discussion, the University of Denver’s Entrepreneurship@DU will explore the dialogue between purpose-driven innovators and long-term impact investors to understand the intersection of profit and purpose. Entrepreneurs and impact investors will share their insights and experiences with turning passion and purpose into commercial enterprise.
