We also offer two customizable presentations for faculty: Making the Case for Social Entrepreneurship Presentation, designed for staff or faculty to engage their institution in social entrepreneurship and Social Entrepreneurship 101 Presentation for use in class or at events raising awareness around social entrepreneurship on campus and in the community.
