Social Enterprise Course at U of W Faculty of Business and Economics

I developed this new course and started teaching it on January 10, 2012.  32 mostly 3rd year business students are enrolled in the 13 week course. With reading week on the horizon, we reached the midway point this past week. There seems to be lots of interest in the social enterprise model. In the first half of the course, I invited two guest speakers, Shaun Loney, Executive Director of B.U.I.L.D. and Richard Doyle, President and CEO of ImagineAbility Inc. (Formerly Versatech Inc.). Both speakers were excellent and the students appreciated having these social entrepreneurs speak to them about their enterprises and their experience. I have already scheduled several guest speakers including Larry Morrissette (OPK) and Cheryl Crowe (ACU) for the second half of the term.
