KWestions for Olivia Khalili of Cause Capitalism – Social Good, Hype or Mission?

This time I had questions for Olivia Khalili, Founder of CauseCapitalism.com. Cause Capitalism or more widely known as Social Good became more and more popular in the past years and today it seems like every second company I come across has a social mission embedded in its strategy.

As Olivia is one of the thought leaders in the social good space and as she is consulting companies on social good I asked her some KWestions.
