About

In This Social Business Model and Planning for Social Innovation offered by Coursera in partnership with Copenhagen Business School we will take the social business opportunity that you have identified in the first course to a higher level. Specifically, you will develop a business model using the Business Model Canvas. 

Gradually you will also start writing your business plan. Moreover, you will be able to assess different organizational forms and select the one that is appropriate for your developed business model. 

By the end of the course you will be able to compare different social impact investment methods and choose the right funding strategy for your social venture.

Note: It is highly recommended to have completed Course 1: 'Identifying Social Entrepreneurship Opportunities' before you start with this Course!
