ABOUT THIS CLASS
I am teaching KPPI 452, “Social Enterprise: Designing for Change,” for Kellogg during Fall Quarter 2015. (It’s known informally as Kellogg’s “Social Enterprise Lab.”) This class aims to offer an introduction to the history, theory, structures and emerging debates in social entrepreneurship. Most specifically we will explore – in class and through projects – social entrepreneurship as a field as well as a mechanism for designing for social problem solving.
The lab component of this course enables teams of Kellogg students to work on a social change initiative in partnership with a local organization. Student teams will work with revenue-generating initiatives and for-profit companies working in education, food and sustainability, economic and community development, and civic and open data sectors. This class is intended for students who want to start, work for, advise or invest in a business designed to have a social impact.
