Social Entrepreneurship

Are you motivated to start a business but want to make sure it’s a force for good? In this hands-on class, you will learn the foundations of social entrepreneurship—how to identify and address a pressing community issue through a sustainable, socially positive, and financially viable venture.  You will meet local innovators as you work in teams to develop a vision for your venture, present your plan to a panel of experts for their feedback, and get first-hand experience at selling your venture “story” to knowledgeable professionals.  When you walk away from this class, you will have the tools—the skills, the mindset, and the blueprint—to become a changemaker in your community.
