“How we can move from small scale progress in social innovation to full-scale impact that has the potential to meet the huge needs that still exist among our fellow citizens?”

Watch above and see how Gerald Chertavian and Year Up are addressing that question, as part of NationSwell's Big Bets series. The idea for the series and the footage came out of New Profit’s Gathering of Leaders, a platform for cross-sector dialogue among social-entrepreneurs and leaders in philanthropy, business, media, government, and academia. In February, Gathering participants took on this question and pointed the way towards exciting possibilities.

Over the coming weeks, you'll see videos and conversation with more social entrepreneurs including:

Suzanne Klahr – BUILD on Monday, June 2
Spencer Kympton – The Mission Continues on Monday, June 9
Alan Khazei – Be The Change, Inc. on Monday, June 16

Dr. Pamela Cantor – Turnaround for Children on Monday, June 30
Alexandra Bernadotte – Beyond 12 on July 7
Nick Ehrmann – Blue Engine on Monday, July 14

New Profit is proud to have partnered with NationSwell on “Big Bets.”
