UST Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship and Innovation – Building Resiliency for Social Impact
Featuring Keynote Speaker, Jessica Jackley, founder of Kiva
Presenting Sponsor: United Way
In Minnesota and across the globe, entrepreneurial nonprofits and for-profit social good businesses are mixing nonprofit and commercial elements, thinking by “design,” and developing fresh sources of support to increase their organization’s impact and resilience. Some are start-ups testing ideas; some are long standing organizations making big bets on new ways of “doing good.” The UST Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship on Thursday, October 18 will provide a dynamic, crowd-based, “applied innovation” learning platform. Participants will actively engage with expert innovation and entrepreneurship leaders who have challenged the status quo of social change. They’ll also hear about relevant trends, new sources for financing and practical but “outside the box” methods to create value and resiliency in their work.
Date: Thursday, October 18, 2012
Time: 8am – 4:30pm
Location: University of St. Thomas Minneapolis Campus, 1000 LaSalle Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55403
