Social Entrepreneurship – Utilizing Market Forces To Bring About Innovative Change
Together with social entrepreneurs and experts from the non-profit sector, we will try to shed light on the significance and opportunities that lie in the social entrepreneurship sector. We ask: what is so special about social entrepreneurship and what are the major differences between entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs? The goal of our program is to support social entrepreneurs in Germany and allow for an exchange of best-practice approaches and ideas from United States and Germany. By bringing together professionals from the field and highly engaged students, we would like to support a growing environment of organizations that bring about positive societal change. Together with GAI Saarbrücken’s co-operation partners Saarland University and its large entrepreneurship incubator, and Chamber of Commerce, the lecture/workshop should attract an interesting cross-section of students and entrepreneurs.
Leading Expert: Dr. Eric Staley. Staley entered the field of nonprofit management and resource development in 1975 with the Business and Industry Extension Program of the University of Missouri System. He has led or counseled more than 100 organizations in all three sectors (public, private, and nonprofit) toward achieving their aspirations and missions, and has helped them to increase their various revenue streams by more than a billion dollars. Eric served as Vice President and chief development officer of three universities and the CEO of a national arts and education nonprofit organization.
