When we came together to create PATHFINDER, one of our motivations was to build a system that perpetuates solutions that really, truly work. We were done accepting status quo because the status quo is very clearly not enough. Sure, we’re tiny voices speaking to a worldwide industry that is quite set in its ways. But tiny as we may be, we’re here to make a difference.

This paper was our first endeavour and we’re so proud to publish it. What makes things even more exciting is that Canada’s Impact Investor extraordinaire himself, Joel Solomon, signed on to write a Foreword, having just published The Clean Money Revolution.

We believe our paper is the first of its kind. And so, we hope to inspire meaningful thought, conversation and with a little luck, even change.

We contend that social entrepreneurship is a far better – and infinitely more promising – response to the calls for global sustainable development, than not-for-profit organizations.

We invite you to read and share this publication, and to let us know what you think. We’d love to hear from you!
