Event Description:
Entrepreneurship is a powerful tool in solving the world’s most complex problems. Through entrepreneurial education and training, newly born entrepreneurs are creating a positive and transformative impact globally.

In the fight against human trafficking, innovative entrepreneurs are launching dynamic organizations, solutions, and advancements to tackle this egregious human rights abuse. These new leaders and stakeholders in the anti- human trafficking movement are revolutionizing the field at ages from primary school to adult and crafting systemic change. Entrepreneurship also plays a key role in providing economic stability for those to never be at risk for human trafficking. Entrepreneurs may also be survivors of this horrendous crime and now on the forefront of helping those still suffering or those vulnerable to new and further exploitation.

Technology and technological applications are playing a role in some of these ventures, and talented entrepreneurs are shaping the newest wave of innovations. The content for this webinar will answer the following: how did these entrepreneurs get started, and what inspires them? What have been their successes and also their challenges? How has technology played a role in their ventures? What do these entrepreneurs see for the future of the anti-human trafficking movement, and what advice would they give to those who see themselves as emerging entrepreneurs?
