Are you passionate about a social problem that
you’d like to solve? The Gordon
Institute of Business Science’s Entrepreneurship Development Academy will run
the Social Entrepreneurship Programme (SEP) for the 16th year in 2023. The sought-after
course takes excellence in business innovation thinking and applies it to the
social development space.
Social entrepreneurs drive social innovation and transformation in various fields, including education, health, the creative arts, the environment, and enterprise development. These changemakers blend lessons from business with the diversity and complexity of social values and pursue opportunities for change in the process. They seek long-term sustainability while simultaneously combining the pursuits of purpose and profit when developing and implementing innovative solutions for collective social impact.
Over 700 social entrepreneurs have already been equipped with technical, creative, strategic and management skills and strategic networks to address various social and economic challenges while ensuring financial stability.
The SEP is a middle-management training programme aimed at those who want to align their efforts to make a difference, measure their impact, and achieve social change by running social enterprises. The programme will be offered in a blended format (online and classroom-based), thus making it accessible to a broader audience.
