Doing Well & Doing Good: Opportunities in Social Innovation

, Co-Founder at Startup Box South Bronx

More than ever, talented students and professionals are deciding that a good job means more than just a good salary.  They have come to the realization that believing in the work you do...is priceless.

This class is for folks that want to find work that has meaning...and still be able to pay off their student loans.

Over the last few years, there has been an explosion of opportunities in a number of exciting fields - Social Entrepreneurship, Impact Investing, Micro-finance, Education Reform - that offer the chance to create positive change and make a decent living...delivering the promise of both doing well, and doing good.  

 This class will:

  • Unpack the often nebulous term 'Social Innovation'
  • Offer an overview of some of the leading players and activities working in the social innovation space. 
  • Help folks who want to find a job in this space understand where to look for opportunities,  and offer insights into how to take advantage of them.

If you are a mid-career professional looking to transition, a college student trying to find your path, or simply someone interested in some of the extraordinary and innovative work being done to try to make our world a better place, this class is for you.
