A lesson all successful entrepreneurs seem to learn quickly is that they must solve a problem. For social entrepreneurs, this is even more important. If people are literally dying as they wait for a solution, the ones who show up to help have a greater obligation to do so something that will solve the problem—at least for some of those experiencing it. Classy, which operates a crowdfunding platform for nonprofits and social entrepreneurs, has created an award the company calls the Collaborative + Classy Award to recognize social entrepreneurs who “are tackling some of the world’s most complex problems,” according to a company press release. The awards were presented on June 16, 2017 in Boston. For this article, the ten winners and Classy co-founder Pat Walsh, the company’s chief impact officer, came together to record a discussion about the problems they solve and the work they are doing to solve them. You can watch the entire discussion with the winners in the video player at the top of this article. Read the full Forbes article and watch the interview here: http://bit.ly/2vZOP1B.
