Thanks for checking out the Awarepreneurs podcast! My name is Paul Zelizer and I am passionate – you could say obsessed – about the intersection of 3 things: a) conscious business, b) social impact and c) awareness practices. I believe these 3 movements are some of the most dynamic and hopeful movements on our beautiful planet at this time. Around the world. people are discovering how to lead with awareness, have massive positive impact and create businesses that truly are a force for good. Each week, I do a deep dive interview with a thought leader in this intersection. Someone who has an enterprise that is market tested and already transforming many lives. I ask the gritty and sometimes challenging questions – like how they earn their money, how many people they help and what some of their biggest failures are. Lastly, one unique aspect of the Awarepreneurs conscious business podcast is an opportunity for dynamic community colearning. Every Tuesday, I post a new episode. And, I post an invitation to dialogue – including with the host – in the Awarepreneurs Facebook group. There are thousands of smart, funny and experienced social enterprise leaders in the group. This opportunity for colearning is a unique aspect of Awarepreneurs. My goal for this show is to help you grow your businesses, enhance your well being and increase your social impact.

We find ourselves at a moment of unprecedented challenge – and opportunity. While the COVID-19 health, economic, and racial crises have laid bare and exacerbated any number of structural inequalities, and global climate change remains an existential – and very urgent – threat, they also compel us to reimagine how leaders across the private, nonprofit, and public sectors can champion social and environmental change in ways that truly advance shared prosperity and a sustainable future. Presented by the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia Business School, Capital for Good provides a window into this reimagined future: a chance to hear from corporate and civic leaders about their visions, plans, commitments, and on-the ground efforts to build a more just, inclusive, and sustainable society. Through in depth and candid conversations, we will explore and unpack solutions to some of our most urgent challenges. Can business be a force for good? What is stakeholder capitalism? What is the role of capital markets and philanthropy along the pathways to inclusive growth? How do we encourage and scale grassroots and broad-based innovation? How can public private partnerships help bring all of our resources and ingenuity to bear? About the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise The center educates leaders to use business knowledge, entrepreneurial skills, and management tools to address social and environmental challenges. About the Host Georgia Levenson Keohane is a seasoned executive in the private and nonprofit sectors at the intersection of capital markets, responsible investing and business, and philanthropy and public policy; an award winning author; and an adjunct professor of social enterprise at Columbia Business School.
