This course is designed to act as a primer to social entrepreneurship as an academic field as well as a career. The structure of the class is to provide a generous amount of information on the background of the field as well as to provide a set of tools and training to jumpstart your own social venture. The first half will generally be dedicated to the background, and the second half to the tools and information you need for practical applications of this information.
The goal of the first class is to act as a way for the class to become introduced to each other and to start becoming comfortable working together through a couple of ice breakers that are designed to force teams to work together. In our experience, each class is 2 hours long, and the course has been designed around this experience. Please feel free to modify, change, and/or adapt all of these instructions and activities to fit your own needs.
There are no readings for next week.
Next week will be a discussion based overview of all the most important concepts in social entrepreneurship to date. Topics ranging from 'social philanthropy' and 'social enterprises' to 'greenwashing' and 'triple bottom line economics'. This crash course should act as the foundation for future conversations and act as a reference point in all future discussions.
