In Minnesota and across the nation, new business ventures are emerging for the sole purpose of “doing good.” These hybrid for-profit/not-for-profit entities, inspired by the belief that society’s challenges belong to all of us, are providing a fresh source of much-needed support for people and for the planet.

The UST Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship will facilitate participants in analyzing various hybrid social benefit models and investigating innovative ideas for forging their own social benefit partnerships.

Business leaders, nonprofit directors and managers, entrepreneurs, policy makers, and philanthropists are encouraged to attend this dynamic, applied-learning event to deepen their knowledge and make personal connections with prospective partners.

The symposium will prepare you to:

  • Apply what you have learned about game-changing trends and implications that are shaping a new social economy
  • Focus your social impact goals and discern actions
  • Expand access to human and capital resources
  • Broaden your network and opportunities
