ISC 260 - (IDM-260) Social Entrepreneurship

Course Units: 1
Entrepreneurs identify opportunities, mobilize resources and make things happen. This course applies the active mindset of the entrepreneur to social organizations. The measure of success is not profit, but change. Passion and mission are the motivators. Examples include feeding the hungry, improving the environment, educating the destitute, housing the poor, training the unskilled, caring for the disenfranchised sick, and much more. Jeroo Billimoria founded Child line in Mumbai, India that provides services to street children. Veronica Khosa founded Tateni that works with aids victims in South Africa. Jacob Schramm founded College Summit to make college accessible to low-income students in the U.S. And the list goes on. In the course, we will study many examples of social entrepreneurship, identify best and worst practices, work with local social entrepreneurial organizations and identify opportunities to make the world a better place.
