April 25, 2012
Women 2.0, a website that advances women’s voices in founding and running companies – of all types – is a fantastic resource for women and entrepreneurship. We’re honored that our Founding Partner, Siiri Morley, wrote a guest blog for Women 2.o about running a triple bottom line business. In the blog she discusses the challenges (and joys!) of running a triple bottom line business that focuses on social, environmental and financial returns.
