"University of Georgia student Regan Durkin is passionate about two things," starts an article in the Athens Banner-Herald. "Entrepreneurship and her faith."
The article details how Durkin, a Terry College student co-majoring in management as well as international business and Spanish, used her knowledge of entrepreneurship and micro-financing to start a local chapter of HOPE International.
“I wanted to start a chapter (of Hope International) at UGA so students can see how social entrepreneurship works before they get into the workforce,” said Durkin. “I see a difference between social and traditional entrepreneurship. If you can figure out how to use a sustainable model to better a social issue, you have gone above and beyond what entrepreneurship looks like. This chapter can show students what social entrepreneurship is, how it works, how it’s working in other countries and influence how they conduct business in the future.”
