Shawn Parr: Social Entrepreneurship Takes to the Streets
BLK SHP believes we’re in a time of reinvention and renewal and will support yearlong fellowships for talented entrepreneurs
“A sustainable world means working together to create prosperity for all” ––Jacqueline Novogratz
It’s no secret that American national institutions are in a challenged state. From the widespread crony capitalism that weakened Wall Street to the stagnation in Washington D.C., globalization and technology have disrupted America. And while some people are doing extremely well in the new era, there’s an enormous empathy gap about what’s really happening in middle America.
BLK SHP, a rapidly growing community of creative thinkers and doers, is gearing up for a socially focused cross-country bus trip this year called The BLK SHP Operation. Its focus is on the rediscovery of America in the 21st Century. BLK SHP believes we’re in a time of reinvention and renewal and the group will support yearlong fellowships for talented entrepreneurs to partner with mayors throughout middle America to tackle social problems in new and creative ways.
