THE NEW BREED: The Rise of the Social Entrepreneur - is a new feature documentary that captures millennial change-makers using business to fix some of the world's biggest problems.
Social Entrepreneurship has the potential to radically change the world for good, but it remains poorly understood and under-appreciated.
Your support is critical to bring this film to life. Your contribution will allow the film crew to travel and capture amazing stories of social and environmental impact around the world.
The biggest global issues like poverty, inequality, and climate change are not being fixed by governments or charities. Business has been corrupted, putting profit before people and the planet. We have learned that protesting, occupying, and boycotting is not enough. If we want to create a world that’s fair, peaceful and healthy, we need a new form of activism.
Until the last decade, few activists around the world saw themselves as part of a growing movement. This all changed in 2006 when Muhammad Yunus won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in micro-finance and Blake Mycoskie launched the one-for-one business model, bringing these change-agents together under a single banner: The Social Entrepreneur.
Today, Social Entrepreneurship courses are some of the most heavily enrolled at leading universities and a new generation of innovators are quickly growing and evolving this movement, tackling issues as far reaching as homelessness and pollution.
After researching the Social Enterprise movement for two years, Director Pete Williams is convinced that this is the new form of activism needed to transform the world and has set out on a journey to create a feature film to lift Social Entrepreneurship to mainstream consciousness.
The New Breed journeys with a diverse group of millennial Social Entrepreneurs and captures their rollercoaster ride of hardships and breakthroughs, from business plan to impact delivery.
Featured stories including: Bonfolk, Bureo, Cabaro, Future Glory, Hand-in-Hand, Krochet Kids, LSTN & Sseko Designs.
Stories and perspectives from low income communities have historically been under represented due to lack of resources. So, we have dedicated 25% of the film’s profits to purchase film equipment and deliver film training to aspiring filmmakers from underprivileged backgrounds to help bring their stories to life.
The inspiration for our social impact plan came from Patrick, a deaf photographer from Gulu, Uganda. Photography is his primary source of income, but when we met him earlier this year, his camera was old and had a cracked screen.
This image shows the film's first social contribution, a new camera for Patrick.
