ISE 307 - Social Venture Challenge

Credits: 2-3
Offers a hands-on introduction to the purpose and practicalities of starting an organization for impact. This effort entails some mastery of the creative process of entrepreneurship for establishing new ventures (non-profit, business, hybrid, etc). The focus of this course is participation in an annual Social Venture Challenge competition, one that offers practical guidance for students from any major interested in starting (or managing) a new venture. Through a series of workshops, meetings, mentor opportunities and hard work, this is also a class where students compete to win part of an annual cash prize. This class will serve as training ground for those curious to know if they can develop the creativity and determination necessary to launch their own venture. 2 credits is awarded for the course plus 1 additional credit if the student makes it to the final competition round. Course may be taken up to four times; maximum of  two instances can apply to the Innovation & Social Enterprise Minor .
