Social Enterprise Alliance of Long Island Launches “Inside Social Enterprise with Ann Liguori”

New interview series travels Long Island to find the best and brightest examples of Social Enterprise

 Bohemia, NY—Social Enterprise Alliance of Long Island (SEA-LI), the local affiliate of the nation’s leading social entrepreneurism organization, will host the first in a new series of live interviews with local businesses that use social entrepreneurism to improve their bottom line. Growing in popularity across the U.S., social entrepreneurism is a hybrid economic model that unites for-profit and nonprofit organizations to create mutual self-sustaining value and measurable social impact.

The first Inside Social Enterprise interview will take place at the Viscardi Center in Albertson, NY on October 23, 2013 from 8:00AM to 10:30AM and includes a light breakfast. There is no cost to attend the event, which is open to SEA-LI members and non-members.

Radio and Television sports personality, Ann Liguori, will host the series.

“As a long time supporter of socially responsible business, I am both excited and intrigued by the premise of what social entrepreneurism can offer,” said Ann Liguouri. “I very much look forward to seeing how these companies operate.”

Guests will have an opportunity to network and participate in a guided tour of the Viscardi Center where they can see first-hand how one of Long Island’s premier organizations integrates social entrepreneurism into their day to day operations.

“We are thrilled to be organizing the Inside Social Enterprise series,” said Ken Cerini, Partner of Cerini & Associates, LLP and President-Interim of SEA-LI. “I think people will be surprised at how social entrepreneurism can add to an organization’s internal and external value proposition.”

Seating is limited. Those interested in attending must register by October 15, 2013 at
