Join us for our year-end members social and help us launch the latest Commonwealth Club book!

Recently, the Club presented an entire series on social entrepreneurship. Today, "social entrepreneurship" describes a host of new initiatives and approaches that break from traditional philanthropic behavior and are having a major impact on society. This compelling series has been published as a book, The Real Problem Solvers: Social Entrepreneurs in America, featuring leading entrepreneurs, funders, investors, thinkers, and champions talking from their own, first-person perspectives.
Join editor Dr. Ruth Shapiro and contributors Matt Bannick of the Omidyar Network, Kriss Deiglmeier of Stanford and Premal Shah of Kiva for the premiere of this important book that serves as the ideal introduction to the amazing potential of social entrepreneurship.
