This introductory course in social entrepreneurship will go over the paradigm-breaking theories of using revenue generating business models to drive change in society or the environment. Why use business as a force for change? Evidence shows that the social sector is not the best vehicle for this; in fact, 1,000,000,000 people were lifted out of extreme poverty through responsible allocation of resources, not through traditional charity. Learn how this happened, and how you can make money helping others. We will examine non-profit social enterprises, for-profit social enterprises, cause marketing firms, and impact investing houses. One day, all business will be social business.
