More and more people, especially career starters, are looking for a job with purpose. In the past, this has often lead to jobs in non-profits and foundations. Since the rise of social entrepreneurship, it is clear that also social startups and social enterprises need good talent. It is even one of their biggest challenges, finding the right people in order to develop, grow and scale their business, especially with the limited financial resources they have.
