The Disruptors – Social Entrepreneurs reinventing business and society

by Kerryn Krige and Gus Silber

Can business change the world? Can the world change business?

For a new breed of social entrepreneurs, striving to build and grow enterprises that fight social ills, foster opportunity, and help to improve society, the answer is not can, it’s must. From healthcare to mobile gaming, from education to recycling, from dancing to gardening, these are the game-changers, the difference-makers, the doers of good. Here are their stories.

We’ve mapped all our Social Entrepreneurs in The Disruptors book on a spectrum that plots whether they are profit driven or mission driven enterprises. Where do you plot on the spectrum? Are you a Kovin or a Jonathan?


Kerryn Krige heads up the Network for Social Entrepreneurs at GIBS, and has worked in the social sector since 2001. Gus Silber is an award-winning journalist, editor speechwriter and author, with a special interest in social entrepreneurship.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Gus Silber, journalist, commentator and co-author of “The Disruptors”, for his weekly business book review.
