UConn Social Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Conference

Friday, April 24, 2015
8:30am – 4:00pm

Storrs Campus
Thomas J. Dodd Research Center

In October 2014, Connecticut joined a growing number of states that empower for-profit corporations to expand their core missions to expressly include human rights, environmental sustainability, and other social objectives. As a new legal class of businesses, these “benefit corporations” join a growing range of social entrepreneurship and enterprise models that have the potential to have positive social impacts on communities in Connecticut and around the world. Designed to evaluate and enhance this potential, SE2 will feature a critical examination of the various aspects of social entrepreneurship, as well as practical guidance on the challenges and opportunities presented by the newly adopted Connecticut Benefit Corporation Act and other forms of social enterprise. Participation in free, but space is limited. Register here: http://thedoddcenter.uconn.edu/business-human-rights/register-for-2015-uconn-social-enterprise-and-entrepreneurship-conference/
