About

This Identifying Social Entrepreneurship Opportunities Course offered by Coursera in partnership with Copenhagen Business School will clarify the definition and meaning of Social Entrepreneurship and will focus on the need to learn about the source and root of a social problem. 

You will be introduced to different perspectives about Social Entrepreneurship and you will learn about complementary and opportunistic assets which will help you to detect an opportunity and develop an idea of how to create a business for social change. 

From a practical perspective you will be asked to initiate a team formation process and start to think about a problem topic that you want to address with your social venture in the future. You will work in a team to research this topic and will gradually start to think about a particular opportunity and identify a purpose for your social venture project.
