Start here - course intro video:
Learning Outcomes: 1) To understand what social entrepreneurship is; 2) To explore the benefits and downfalls of mission-based business models; 3) To consider whether capitalism and commerce have a place in creating positive social impacts; 4) To learn the basic foundations of creating a mission-based business plan.
Exploration and Engagement will be how we interact with our readings, assignments, and each other. This is meant to be primarily a place of discussion with one and another.
As we move weekly through the course, you will be given assignments that will help you systematically build a business plan. Instead of constructing a plan all at once, you will go section by section as they are assigned.
If you complete all of the assignments in Build a Business Plan, you will have most of the content you will need to construct your final business plan. The primary function to complete the final plan will be to edit and polish the work you have already done through out the term.
