Social entrepreneurship is a model that has been
gaining momentum in recent years as an answer to social problems on a global scale and scarce resources
to address them. Social entrepreneurs apply business principles and leadership skills to address social
issues. They build mission-driven businesses aimed at solving social problems, direct their professional
skills and training toward helping people in need, or use their entrepreneurial skills to found
nonprofits that use innovative business models.

ventures pay for themselves, and how you or your organization can get started. Available as a half-day workshop,

services, clients for your venture to serve, and a fan base of supporters. Learn how to choose and implement
marketing strategies appropriate to your budget, how marketing is different from fundraising, public relations, or
selling, and how to create the essential tools required for effective marketing of a social venture. Available

Coaching Social Entrepreneurs
Social entrepreneurs are people who can't rest until their ideas have changed all of society. These challenging

social entrepreneurship, a step-by-step process for assisting clients to launch new social ventures, how to
empower your clients to hold a global vision, and how to make sure you get paid what you're worth as a coach.
