The Purpose Economy: Passion, Community and Profits
Aaron Hurst, Founder, Taproot Foundation; CEO, Imperative; Author, The Purpose Economy
We are in a new economic era that is driven by connecting people to their purpose. A new breed of startups – like Etsy, Zaarly, Elance, Tough Mudder, Kickstarter and Airbnb – are responding to our desire for purpose by finding new ways to engage with like-minded communities near and far.
Founder and advisor to the Taproot Foundation, where he was the lead architect in developing the $15 billion pro bono service market, Hurst presents a blueprint for a new economic era that is transforming work, organizations and markets to better serve people and the world.
