The founder of the non-profit venture capital Acumen Fund, Jacqueline Novogratz, is coming to present at my Design-At-The-Edge series at Parsons School of Design in NYY Monday night at 6PM. It will bein the Teresa Lange Center, 55 West 13st., 2nd floor. Jacqueline’s new book, The Blue Sweater, is one of the most beautifully written accounts of social entrepreneurship I’ve ever read. It is the real stuff.
So come if you can. And check into this link to Inside Innovation for a cover story on the Acumen innovation model.
And for the “official” book review of The Blue Sweater, check this link. It’s by Helen Walters.
