Event Details



Social entrepreneurship is a rapidly evolving field that leverages entrepreneurship principles towards solving social and environmental problems. It represents a new lens through which individuals and organizations around the world are creating meaningful and sustainable change. The term itself has attracted an increasing amount of talent, resources, and attention, however, social entrepreneurship is at the beginning stages of its growth and is often misunderstood.

This Be Social Change class draws upon the latest social entrepreneurship research as well as the insights and lessons learned from Marcos building out the Be Social Change community to help define and clarify what social entrepreneurship means, how it is practiced, and what you can do to participate within this movement. The class will illuminate how a generation of change makers is exploring and developing new approaches and business models to address the world’s most critical challenges.


*Doors open at 6:45 PM, class starts at 7:00 PM sharp*
