Recap (2015): Spaces Still Available – USASBE Social Entrepreneurship Certificate

We are currently accepting new enrollees for the USASBE Social Entrepreneurship Certificate Program in Washington DC on October 15-16, 2015. Don’t miss out!

We are pleased to announce another opportunity for individuals interested in Social Entrepreneurship. USASBE will launch its seventh cohort in the Social Entrepreneurship Certificate Program this October at the GW Entrepreneurship Research and Policy Conference..

For this new cohort there are seven workshops (“Modules”) that, along with a written deliverable (course syllabus or social venture business plan), are required for completion of the Certificate Program.

The seven Modules are:

  1. Intro to Social Entrepreneurship
  2. Identifying and Assessing Social Entrepreneurship Opportunities
  3. Legal Issues in Social Entrepreneurship
  4. Dynamic Business Models
  5. Development of Business Plan and Funding
  6. Measuring Impact of Social Ventures
  7. Implementing the Social Entrepreneurship Curriculum

Modules 1, 2, and 3 will be offered in Washington, D.C. for new enrollees starting at the GW Conference in October. Module 1 will be presented in the morning and Module 2 in the afternoon of Thursday, October 15, and Module 3 presented in the morning of Friday, October 16. Participants in those Modules at GW will also have free admittance to the GW Conference (including event meals).

The new enrollees who take the first three Modules at the GW conference can then take Modules 4, 5 and 6 at the USASBE 2016 conference in San Diego, California. Module 4 will be presented in the morning and Module 5 in the afternoon of Friday, January 8, and Module 6 presented in the morning of Saturday, January 9. Module 7 (the final Module, which includes mini presentations by participants of 10 minutes) will be conducted by video conference, on a day a time to be mutually determined by the enrollees and the Certificate Program administrators.

Registration in the Certificate Program is open to interested individuals who are current members of USASBE or become members of USASBE in conjunction with enrolling in the Program. Enrollment in the Certificate Program requires payment of a $1,500 registration fee.

We hope to see in you at the GW Conference in Washington DC!
