Social entrepreneurs are individuals with innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems. This course is about developing programs that strive to advance social change through these innovative solutions. Entrepreneurship is a high-risk endeavor in which many new ventures fail. Yet, against these odds, social entrepreneurs are trying to accomplish some very long-term and ambitious goals: end inner-city poverty, improve public education, reduce global warming, and improve healthcare around the world, to name a few.
This is a Case Competition course designed as a laboratory workshop where student teams create and develop plans for social entrepreneurship initiatives, either here or abroad. Proposed initiatives may be new entities or innovative projects, partnerships, and/or other arrangements that will have an impact on existing organizations and social outcomes anywhere in the world. It is hoped that, at course end, students will take their initiatives to regional and national competitions, so that they may pursue funding and engage in the actual implementation of their pilot project.
