Community based program description
This program will launch in Fall 2020
The community-based Social Entrepreneurship Institute will provide social entrepreneurs age 18-35 with a community of support and a motivating learning environment that promotes an “I Got This” mindset that inspires goal development and achievement.
We will accept up to 8 entrepreneurs with a business that has been in existence for 2+ years and has filed at least 1 year of taxes. We invite social entrepreneurs who are coachable, embrace honest feedback and desires to improve while bringing their career and/or business to the next level.
Social entrepreneurs will focus their attention on how to:
- Enhance their brand and influence
- Develop a better understanding of business operations
- Work alongside a community of industry professionals and peers who inspire them to move forward
Additionally, each social entrepreneur will be paired with a coach to help them develop and employ a 3-month action plan.
At the end of 3 months, during the Rites of Passage Ceremony, students present the goals they’ve achieved during the Institute, announce the additional resources they need to bring themselves to the next level and are awarded with a customized business toolkit. Industry professionals and peers in the audience will step up in real time to let them know which resources they can provide.
