Bridge The Gap Between Entrepreneurship And Social Activism We all long to live in a better world. Whether it be a world without hunger or poverty or a world with better access to healthcare and clean drinking water, we are in dire need of positive social changes. Dr. Rob Douk, founder of Douk & Co., has made it his life mission to make a difference--and to help others do the same. As a therapist turned socialpreneuer, Douk has paved the way for companies with a strong social purpose to grow their business as they improve the world. The Fearless Socialpreneur outlines a series of five foundations and five principles that generate success for "socialpreneurs," those who launch innovative enterprises that achieve both financial returns and social benefits. Ranging from faith to family to passion and planning, the foundations and principles work hand in hand to elevate the status of any socially conscious company. It is Douk's belief that good people working together can overcome any challenge to make a profound difference.
Dr. Rob Douk, PSYD, MBA, BCBA-D is the founder of Behavioral Health Works, a therapy provider for those with autism and other disorders; Hope Out Loud, a faith-based nonprofit; and Douk & Co., a boutique investment firm that focuses on social entrepreneurship.
