Skoll World Forum for Social Entrepreneurs Starts Today!

This will be my fourth year in a row attending the Skoll World Forum for Social Entrepreneurs in Oxford, England.

This annual mega-event for the world’s leading social entrepreneurs was started by Jeff Skoll, the billionaire and co-founder of eBay. After leaving eBay, Jeff Skoll now spends his time and money producing socially conscious films (i.e. An Inconvenient Truth, Syriana, Good Night and Good Luck) and investing in social entrepreneurs.

There is always an all-star cast at this event. Previous speakers included Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Paul Farmer and Queen Rania, as well as appearances by Ben Kingsley (who played Gandhi) and Robert Redford!

More soon from Oxford…
