Academies for Social Entrepreneurship

United States of America

Our core program is Social Enterprise Academies, which take place over 6 to nine months and typically engage 6 to 12 organizations in a rigorous growth planning process. During an Academy, participants receive training, mentoring and the chance to participate in a Venture Competition where they present their plan to potential investors. We seek to grow ventures that:  Directly address a particular social problem  Influence systems, not just symptoms of the problem  Have a proven leadership team  Project significant social and financial returns  Prioritize social impact over financial gain for its owners Currently, we are managing two Academies in Southern California- the UCLA Social Enterprise Academy for startups and the SocEnt Challenge for early stage ventures. ASE also regularly offers workshops to encourage people to develop themselves as social entrepreneurs, to learn about the world of social purpose businesses and/or to determine what kind of social enterprise would be the best match for their assets and skills set. ASE is a project of Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs, a 501c3 which is dedicated to providing support resources to projects that promote social and/or environmental justice. SEE provides infrastructure and support services in the areas of finance, regulatory compliance and human resources.
