Video descriptionMajor global problems exist in areas like clean water, healthcare, and access to capital. If governments and NGOs can't address these problems, what should the role of the private sector be? Many believe that mixing profit and purpose is a recipe for long-term disaster. But Michael Chu of Harvard Business School believes differently. Chu has seen for-profit organizations deliver practical, effective solutions to major societal problems. In this interactive HBR webinar, leads a discussion focused on the role of private sector companies in delivering effective, high-impact solutions to pressing social problems. Chu shares specific examples where businesses have successfully responded to public sector failures and will describes why profitable approaches play a key role in addressing society's greatest challenges.
