Stop Waiting For Someone Else To Change The World with Jeff Sorensen
Mon, March 27, 2017, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
This meeting will be the foundational meeting for starting a social innovation student organization at MSU! Jeff Sorensen will be the featured speaker.
As a senior at University of Michigan in 2012, Jeff Sorensen co-founded optiMize as a student-led community for students and alumni to work together to create startups and nonprofits that tackle pressing social issues. Michigan later hired him to create and direct the university's first department for Social Innovation, which now works in tandem with the still student-led optiMize. Since then, optiMize has raised $2 million to support 1,200 students and their startups, companies like Jessica Alba's Honest Co have joined as partners, and optiMize has begun expanding to campuses across the state. Jeff also teaches classes at Michigan and UCLA.
