Class Description:

This course introduces the breadth of social entrepreneurship thinking and action. Social Entrepreneurs identify and address social issues using entrepreneurial principles and approaches. They act as change agents at the local, national and sometimes global level. They focus on creating value for those around them. In general, most agree that social entrepreneurship refers to innovative, organized responses to big social needs that create social change. Social entrepreneurship is not sector specific and is found in nonprofit, for-profit, and government entities as well as in hybrids and partnerships. During this course we will continue to ask what does social entrepreneurship mean? How broadly should we define its boundaries? How does it differ from other kinds of entrepreneurial activity and other kinds of social change? Leaders of the future need to understand how to harness entrepreneurial energies to tackle tough issues. This course will prepare students to participate in, create, develop and lead socially entrepreneurial organizations and initiatives. Students will study and use the concepts and processes necessary to achieve entrepreneurial approaches. Students will also engage in activities that are similar to those successful entrepreneurs do and will have the opportunity to frame a venture plan that could in the future be one they themselves launch. Students will complete a full mission driven venture plan for a social enterprise and present it to a panel of social entrepreneurs.
