Read this great article in the New York Times about a new generation of philanthropists and entrepreneurship coined >  “Philanthropreneur” (at least it’s first time i’ve heard it). From Sir Richard Branson (Virgin) to Pierre Omidyar (eBay) and Jeffrey S. Skoll (eBay),.. these guys got a lot,.. a lot! of cash and want to do a lot of good with it. Watch out! Excerpt from article >

“THIS year, as never before, the line between philanthropy and business is blurring. A new generation of philanthropists has stepped forward, for the most part young billionaires who have reaped the benefits of capitalism and believe that it can be applied in the service of charity. They are “philanthropreneurs,” driven to do good and have their profit, too.”

Good Stuff. For the complete article go here.

Thanks again > SelfishGiving
