“To successfully make the transition to the new socioeconomic era of the information age, we need to learn to focus the enormous power and efficiency of capitalism on the world’s most important problems. To do so will require figuring out how to unite the scalable tools of Technology Entrepreneurship with the moral ethos of Social Entrepreneurship. This is the essence of what the Startup Genome is calling Transformational Entrepreneurship.”

I think we are heading in this direction with our accelerator. i have reached out to the folks opening Asheville’s new tech accelerator to collaborate and connect with ours and they are interested. i want us to launch transformational entrepreneurs in farming, forestry, culture and fiber – don’t ya’ll? http://blogs.hbr.org/cs/2012/04/transformationalentrepreneurs.html
