About the Course

This course is about the most modern form of entrepreneurship: Impact Businesses. Impact Businesses are about maximizing impact, using the classical marketplace and business tools to create social and environmental improvements. We will investigate how Impact Businesses have an impact, what that impact is, and how you can recognize, contribute, or start an Impact Business. This course is for everyone who wants to help create a better future using common market principles but for a different goal: maximizing well-being.
