“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 Curt Ellis and FoodCorps 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.
