Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship|
In this project-based class, students will learn strategies for understanding social and environmental problems, and they will design interventions to create impact. Each student will select a topic to work on individually or as part of a team. Course content will include root cause analysis, ecosystem mapping, theory of change, human-centered design, business models, metrics and evaluation, philanthropy, pitching, and more. Some students will develop real or hypothetical entrepreneurial projects and ventures while others will design pathways to impact as activists, community organizers, strategists, coalition builders, artists, researchers, or other roles. Guest speakers will be invited in to share their own work as social entrepreneurs and changemakers.
