Course Description

Within this Social Enterprise 101 workshop and networking event, participants will receive an overview of social enterprise as a potential alternative to traditional nonprofit fundraising strategies.  Learn to identify and evaluate strengths through an organizational audit and how to translate these strengths into social enterprise opportunities.  Participants will also engage in a process to evaluate the identified opportunities in an effort to determine which should be studied in more detail through a feasibility assessment.
