Social entrepreneurship is the process by which individuals, startups and entrepreneurs develop and fund solutions that directly address social issues. A social entrepreneur, therefore, is a person who explores business opportunities that have a positive impact on their community, in society or the world. We know you care about leaving your mark, and want your group to identify problems you see on campus or in the Iowa City area that you can provide a sustainable solution for.
EXAMPLES OF ISSUES FACED BY OUR COMMUNITY:
Food Insecurity, Mental Health Issues, Building Healthier Communities, Recycling and Waste Management
