Social Venture

Social Venture Work Program

Creating a social venture project is an integral part of the program. With an infusion of human capital, fresh ideas and a new perspective, these innovative projects will provide students with an opportunity to launch a new start-up business, strengthen community organizations, and drive positive social change in the world. For example, a social entrepreneurial project (e.g. poverty alleviation through an energy, housing, education or health program), a project for a local NGO (e.g. a literacy or cultural understanding program), or a significant research program (e.g. comparative study of the impact of the Clean Cookstove Project across emerging economies visited in the program).
