Course aim

The social entrepreneurship learning lab is an introductory course intended to provide students with a theoretical and experience-based foundation in social entrepreneurship. During the course, we will assess, explore, critique, and celebrate the phenomenon of social entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is approached as a practical phenomenon as well as way of thinking and acting, with a principal focus on the creation of new ventures with societal objective. The course will introduce students to key concepts in the field (e.g. opportunity recognition and exploitation, effectuation vs. planning, impact-oriented business models, impact finance the role of
entrepreneurial ecosystems) as well as useful tools in the entrepreneurial process (e.g. lean startup, business model canvas, pitch anatomy).
