About this course:

This course offers an introduction to social impact strategy and social entrepreneurship, including key concepts, an overview of the field, and tools to get started as a change maker. Students will learn how to innovate and design new ideas and new organizational forms to implement those ideas. Students who take this course will be better prepared to evaluate current organizations and/or launch social impact organizations of their own invention. By moving through four stages, Define, Design, Pilot, and Scale, students will turn their passion for changing the world into concrete plans for launching a venture designed to achieve a social goal. This course will allow students to systematically think through challenges; develop potential solutions; build a business model; measure and grow the venture’s impact.
