Today on StartupSmart, we chart the rising popularity of social entrepreneurship in Australia.

 

New research shows that personal wealth isn’t the driving motivation for a growing number of entrepreneurs.

 

But if you start-up with a worthy goal other than maximising profits, can you really make the hard-headed business decisions needed for your start-up to flourish?

 

Today, we speak to the new generation of business builders who are doing everything from running restaurants staffed by disadvantaged youth to selling solar lights to Africa to get their tips on how to drive growth while maintaining a social conscience.

 

Elsewhere, we have a video panel discussion on female business role models and Villa and Hut founder Franz Madlener gives his advice on how to stay motivated when starting up.
