Enabling Social Entrepreneurship
Did you know that more than half the world survives on $2.00 a day. That adds up to millions of people in poverty.
The goal of the Social Venture in a Bag© guide and program is to empower girls to view entrepreneurship as an opportunity to develop their confidence, knowledge, and skill sets, whilst uplifting their families and communities economically and socially.
The guide is designed as a journey. Participants begin with a self analysis of their interests, knowledge, and skills, and then seek to map these assets to new business opportunities.
Having conducted a personal analysis, participants will determine the needs of their community and how social entrepreneurship can address these needs. Students will consider business creation, target customers, the business model, costs, pricing, and marketing.
Participants will additionally consider the partnerships and/or mentorship needed to enable business launch and product/service development. In the end, the hope is that participant experiences will be shared with peers and that participants will eventually serve in the role of mentorship for other young social entrepreneurs.
