Ready to be inspired? Check out this year’s Yoshiyama Young Entrepreneurs winners!
The 2013 Yoshiyama Awardees are an impressive bunch. From using mobile tech to create a relationship between low-income patients and healthcare companies to providing inner-city youth financial education, these young entrepreneurs are helping lift their communities out of poverty.
This is truly a commendable corporate responsibility strategy, because Hitachi wins when the community wins.
“When you see a Yoshiyama entrepreneur, you see a person with the vision that a creative artist has, the passion of a social-change agent, and with the competency of a great business leader,” explained Barbara Dyer, president and CEO of The Hitachi Foundation.
“[T]hese entrepreneurs are bringing to life is a quality that has always been there in American business, it’s just been subordinated by short-term interests. And that’s the quality of marrying purpose and profit.”
