Course Details

Course Code: ENTR312 Course ID: 4822 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Undergraduate

Social entrepreneurship is a growing movement for entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship scans society and identifies social problems; the entrepreneur then solves that problem/need by creating a solution that benefits society. Because of this, Social Entrepreneurship has since become the new trend for aspiring entrepreneurs to start their entrepreneurial ventures. According to a survey of 1,000 social entrepreneurs (conducted by Un.Ltd. research team), they impact health and well-being, community cohesion, promote personal development, and create training and skills development. Further, the research indicated 40% of social entrepreneurs held a degree.
