Comparing Martinez and Schultz
Tricia Martinez is different than Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks. Martinez is a social entreprenuer and started a non-profit organization to help women in extreme poverty. Schultz started Starbucks to have success because he noticed coffee shops would do well. Entreprenuers can have different goals as seen here. Martinez want to help get women out of poverty, and Schultz wants to make money while helping people get great coffee and giving good employee benefits.
In this video Schultz talks about how a $15 minimum wage will hurt small businesses. But he also states how increasing the minimum wage will help people get by and have a little more money. He also states how Starbucks gives employee benefits and they like them. So, Schultz demonstrates some social entreprenuer traits
