Social Entrepreneur

Hosted ByTony Loyd

Social Entrepreneur exists at the intersection of profit and purpose. We tell positive stories from underrepresented voices, focused on solutions.

000, Introduction, Social Entrepreneur

This is the “getting to know you” episode of the podcast Social Entrepreneur. In this initial episode, I tell the story of how a woman in Kenya, who simply wanted to get the best price for her chickens led to the founding of this podcast. I’ll describe what a social entrepreneur is and what they do. I’ll also go over the form, frequency and the topics of the podcast.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • The story of “Mrs. Ruto buys a phone”
  • The story of “Tony’s River of Life takes a turn” 
  • The challenge of doing good while maximizing return to shareholders 
  • My Jerry Maguire moment 
  • What is a social entrepreneur? 
  • The format, frequency and topics of this podcast
