What Drives a Social Entrepreneur

This field lab asks students to discover the core drives within the social entrepreneurs whom they will meet and interview, and explore their own motivations to become a social entrepreneur through self-reflection and insight sharing. The goal is for students to embrace social entrepreneurship as a mindset, rather than a title or label, a membership in an incubator, or a demo at a pitch fest.

Academic Objectives:

  1. To gain an understanding on a range of entrepreneurial motives
  2. To gain an understanding on the various conditions conducive or inhibiting the rise of a social entrepreneur
  3. To develop practical skills to engage others for authentic and purposeful conversations
