SENT 406 - SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP II: IMPLEMENTATION

In Social Entrepreneurship II, we actually become social entrepreneurs by studying the everyday structural, legal and financial challenges associated with launching a business enterprise in its efforts to create social impact. Students will take their business model from Social Entrepreneurship I, and further develop it by performing additional market research, prototyping and practicing continuous investor initiatives. Students will work through issues of market analysis, technology viability assessment, competitive positioning, team building, product life cycle planning, marketing strategy and financing, with a major emphasis on learning how to attract investment capital.
