Curious about the world of social entrepreneurship? Ready to jump in, but not sure where to start? Join us for a +Acumen Lab on the topic Social Entrepreneurship 101 where we’ll explore what ‘social entrepreneurship’ is, and get you started on discovering a concrete way to contribute to a social enterprise. In this Lab, we’ll get just a taste of the activities from the full course offered by +Acumen, and have the opportunity to start to explore your own path in social entrepreneurship.
WHAT IS +ACUMEN LAB?
+Acumen Labs are volunteer-led events bringing together like-minded communities to engage in a collaborative learning experience. Lab Leaders take the reins in making these events happen. Using tools and guides from +Acumen, Lab Leaders take the lead in facilitating a 2 hour Lab that will give participants a taste of the full online course, and they add in their own creativity and knowledge of their local communities.
HOW IT WORKS?
Show up ready to learn, participate, and discuss! The +Acumen Labs were designed to be a collaboration of the community, so everyone is asked to contribute in a small way to creating the event together. As a participant, we ask that you please bring your own learning supplies. This includes pens / pencils and either post-it notes or paper to write on. Lab Leaders will provide the content and additional learning materials.
YOU'LL LOVE THIS LAB IF:
- You’ve heard the term “social entrepreneurship” but want to find out what it really means & how to get involved
- You’re looking for ideas to add more meaning to your life and career
- You have a burning desire to do good in ways that are smart and effective - You’re eager to lend your skills and talents to solve a social problem
Please note: This is an entry level +Acumen course intended to be most valuable to people approaching the social entrepreneurship sector for the first time.
