Alleviating Poverty Through Entrepreneurship Summit
As Fisher undergraduate student Suzy Bureau explained, “social entrepreneurship” might strike some as a strange term.

“You don’t think that those two things can interact, but they definitely can and that’s how you create sustainable solutions,” said Bureau, a co-organizer of the Alleviating Poverty Through Entrepreneurship summit, which explores innovative, market-based solutions to poverty across the world.

The third annual summit took place in April at the Wexner Center for the Arts on the Ohio State campus and featured a variety of speakers, including alumna Tanisha Robinson. Robinson founded, a social enterprise that supports local restaurants while fighting hunger. Her appearance was supported by the Fisher’s College Diversity Committee and organized by Fisher’s Business Builders Club, a student organization.

Other Fisher student organizations involved with planning the summit included Fisher Cares and the Purchasing and Supply Management Association.
