Praise for Social Innovation, Inc.
"A must–read for business leaders, policy makers, and not–for–profit executives. Social innovation may be one of the greatest untapped business opportunities and the way to reconcile responsibility and profits." William M. Daley, vice–chairman and head of corporate responsibility, JPMorgan Chase, and 32nd United States Secretary of Commerce

Jason Saul provides business leaders with sensible strategies for creating social value as integral drivers of business strategy. His ideas come alive with practical examples from the field." Allen S. Grossman, professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School
"A must–read for corporate CEOs, business leaders, and entrepreneurs.

Morris Miller, managing director, Cutstone Ventures, LLC, and former CEO, co–chairman, and co–founder, Rackspace Hosting

Unless companies commit themselves to being good they simply won′t do well." Mats Lederhausen, founder, BE–CAUSE, and former managing director, McDonald′s Ventures
"Social Innovation, Inc. will help lead the way toward the mainstreaming of an important and creative new framework for us all, from businesspeople to philanthropists, investors to customers, in how we think about integrating social factors into initiatives.
