The purpose of this activity is to teach students about social entrepreneurship through hands on experience. This activity can begin before the course starts so that students will have an understanding of social entrepreneurship and discussions can begin during the first class meeting. On the other hand, this activity could be a project carried out for the duration of a semester course.
Students will research selected social entrepreneurs and have the opportunity to interview them. Using their research and interview data, they will write a case study of the social entrepreneur. Through this process will learn about the motivation, vision, expectations, and goals of entrepreneurs who focus on contributing to the greater good of society. They will also identify some of the challenges faced by these entrepreneurs and propose possible solutions.
