From Private Equity to Social Enterprise with KKR's George Roberts

"You have to attract and keep the best people

"I founded REDF to fund not-for-profit endeavors that would provide training and entry-level jobs for the chronically unemployed, including homeless people, young adults disconnected from work and school, formerly incarcerated individuals, or people with histories of addiction, mental illness or other disabilities," he said.
