Business Planning for the Social EnterpriseThursday, December 6th from 6:00pm to 8:00pmBrad Armstrong, Social Entrepeneur
Fad's come and go, and buzzwords lose their intended meaning as time goes on, but I believe Social Enterprise is here to stay and may even be the future of business. This class will explore the phenomena of Social Enterprise from a business planning perspective, comparing and contrasting differences across the hybrid spectrum of social business through the lenses of funding, marketing, business model, mission and vision, legal structure, and measurement and accountability. We will dig in to mission-based profits through examples and case-studies, and use Games Based Learning to understand the motivations of social entrepreneurs.
