Dean Thomas Cooley's social business speech discusses the benefits of starting up a social business and the main idea behind them. Cooley is the Dean of the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University. Cooley discusses large grants that exist solely to encourage social business start ups.
Cooley believes that business students have a desire to do something good in the business world, which is why more and more social businesses are emerging. Grants for social business start-ups exist because students are generally very interested in the concept.
Cooley explains that while he and other professors believe in the importance of social business, large start-up grants wouldn't exist if it weren't for the interest shown by business students.
