Implementing Impact! the Business of Social Design is a new one-week intensive workshop that will focus on the business of social design by exploring critical topics in hands-on modules ranging from analysis, marketing, management and operations to funding models.

The Big Idea will focus on social entrepreneurship and educate participants on how to conceive, develop, fund and execute their own socially-minded project, program or social enterprise.
