2 Part Interview with Social Entre Author David Bornstein

Bornstein’s book, How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of Ideas, was used often in my class on social entrepreneurship at GMU’s School of Public Policy. Here is a two part interview with Bornstein from Buzzflash.com — part 1, part 2. Bornstein explains to motivation of entrepreneurs and many other important topics. As we often highlight, the entrepreneur is driven to create. From part 1 of the interview:

The first one is a global misperception, which is that entrepreneurs only start businesses, and that the basic motivation behind the entrepreneur is the desire for wealth – personal wealth. There’s lots of research to show and I can speak from my own experience that that’s not the case. In fact, entrepreneurs are primarily motivated by the desire to build something. To see their ideas come to life.

Worth reading these interviews.
