Program Description

Social Entrepreneurship has emerged as a valuable framework for community development and nonprofit sustainability. It has significantly influenced the nonprofit sector resulting in innovative practices that advance social, environmental and/or cultural missions. Social entrepreneurial practices contribute to the financial sustainability while meeting a need in the marketplace through the sale of goods and services. Social entrepreneurship is a mindset that drives nonprofits to revolutionize traditional supports and services and influence social, environmental and/or cultural change in our local and global communities.

Social entrepreneurs, community leaders and program peers mentor student innovators in building a social enterprise business plan as well as navigating the complexities associated with the management of social enterprise ventures within the nonprofit sector.
