Midwest Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship

Over the last two decades we have witnessed expanding interest in social entrepreneurship – a movement that crosses the boundaries of the business, nonprofit and public sectors, and is rapidly growing. The Fourth Annual Midwest Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship offers a forum to continue the advancement of social entrepreneurship thinking, teaching and practice, promote collaborative exchange of knowledge and experience, and facilitate a discussion among business and nonprofit practitioners, teachers, researchers, funders, and others interested in sharing and shaping ideas and learning focused on promoting successful social entrepreneurship. This highly participative symposium includes the opportunity to attend and take part in a number of workshops developed and delivered by leading faculty in the field of social entrepreneurship. The symposium will also allow its participants to tap into the existing experiences and expertise of those living, breathing and supporting social entrepreneurship. The Symposium begins with Opening Remarks at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 23, followed by morning and afternoon workshops, as well as presentations at a luncheon and early evening reception that day, all at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center. The Tuesday, May 24 schedule includes morning workshops, a luncheon panel, and, in the afternoon, a social venture business plan presentation event featuring several entrepreneurial initiatives developed by students participating in The Aaron L. Levitt Social Entrepreneurship Challenge. The Tuesday, May 24 workshops and events will take place at the Henry W. Bloch Executive Hall for Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
