About Us

SE Delphi (Social Entrepreneur Delphi) is an online reference center for all-things related to Social Entrepreneurship.  Like the Greek city of Delphi nearly 3,000 years ago, this is where one seeking knowledge can find direction and guidance.  Whether you’re an industry veteran or just beginning to learn about social entrepreneurship, we hope you’ll find useful resources within these pages.

Clint Lunde was bit by the social entrepreneurial bug in 2009, when he left Microsoft to launch a non-profit organization (SkiDUCK) to share his passion for skiing and the mountains with disadvantaged and disabled children.  He coined the term “Passion Squared” to describe the exponential energy and drive social entrepreneurs possess when they combine their personal passion(s) with their innate compassion.  His greatest desire is to inspire others to identify and pursue their own passions for creating social good, which led to the idea for creating SEDelphi as a free online resource center for the growing Social Entrepreneurial community.  Clint spent several years in management roles with companies such as Microsoft and Blue Cross Blue Shield.  He holds a BS in Business Administration from North Dakota State University and an MBA from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management.
