Socially Innovative Entrepreneurship Across Cultures

The proposed project aims to develop a robust, user friendly educational strategy and tools that can be used to empower people close to the social problems to address these challenges through sustainable, revenue generating entrepreneurial action. The research explores how education, as a social science, can contribute to positive social changes through studies in entrepreneurship and innovation. The methodology is designed to use real life, real time data to identify the most effective educational tools that inspire creation of socially innovative business models across cultures. The goal of this research is to identify educational strategies that can cross cultures and countries by uniting people through shared values. These strategies may appeal to a broad range of individuals who see solutions to social problems, but who lack the tools to turn their ideas into a thriving business.
