This program is an entry-level studio for students who are interested in learning about mission-driven entrepreneurship (a.k.a. social entrepreneurship). Social Venture Studio is ideal for students looking to get out of their comfort zone, challenge themselves, and sharpen their thinking. Applicants are considered based on their interest in solving social, environmental, and economic problems; prior entrepreneurial experience is not a requirement.
