"I think there's every reason to believe that Seattle will be the capital of social entrepreneurship in the next ten years," says Brian Howe, an adjunct professor at Seattle School of Law and founder of Hub Seattle , which rents space to social entrepreneurs.

Reason.tv sat down with Howe and Michael "Luni" Libes, a "serial entrepreneur" who has helped build five technology start-ups, to talk about #SocEnt Weekendan an event modeled on the very popular Startup Weekend that endeavors to offer an environment for entrepreneurs to collaborate and bring their ideas to fruition.

Libes and Howe discussed the idea of the "social enterprise," which involves using for-profit enterprise to solve social problems.

"Business men and women think about, 'How am I going to take this small thing and create leverage? How is this going to scale?'" said Howe.

About 5 minutes. Interview by Zach Weissmueller. Filmed and Edited by Weissmueller.
