We use case studies, workshops, panels and a pitch competition to highlight the social entrepreneurial experience.
Case studies to help participants gain a deeper understanding of what goes into the creation of a successful venture. Case studies provide guided contextual analysis of specific business situations, and small group setting encourages dynamic exchanges between students and case leaders.
Workshops to foster both professional and personal development, equipping participants with skills useful now and in the future. They are led by leading Harvard professors and distinguished guest speakers and include talks and hands-on activities regarding a variety of topics from ideation to product design to pitching.
PANELS AND PITCH COMPETITION
Panels seek to inspire, connect, and answer participants’ questions about social innovation. They are led by social entrepreneurs and current students who speak about their experiences bringing about change and the exciting projects that they’ve been working on.
The Pitch Competition allows participants to present, share and celebrate what they’ve worked on during the conference. It allows participants to gain insightful feedback from VCs and win prizes.
