The Social Entrepreneurship seminar offered by WSBT is designed to provide prospective social entrepreneurs with knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to understand, develop, analyze, and implement social change initiatives. Social entrepreneurship is more than simply starting a not-for-profit, 501 C 3 corporation.
Social entrepreneurship includes new product development; innovations in services, distribution channels and brands to address the most pressing, complex societal and sustainability problems.
The seminar explores how social entrepreneurs can employ existing resources and use innovation to function as an entrepreneur with the realities of complex socio-economic and political conditions. In addition, we will provide a process by which a social entrepreneur can create, nurture and achieve success in a new social venture that can perhaps change society.
