The worlds of ‘working for the betterment of society’ and ‘private enterprise’ are often seen as incompatible. This course will attempt to break-down that perception in order for participants to see the social sector as a place of opportunity, both to ‘do good’ but also to innovate and build a financially sustainable social enterprise. The course suggests that in order to get a socially beneficial idea off the ground, effectively grow it, and make it financially sustainable, social entrepreneurs need to think creatively beyond models of traditional nonprofits or for-profits.

Do you sense that the world is changing at an increasingly quickening pace? Are you noticing that the way you communicate, find information, shop, learn, and work have changed in the last few years?  How have you reshaped your practices as an educator in response to these changes?

This course deeply explores one of the most difficult pieces of getting any project off the ground, as well as managing and maintaining sustainability and growth- resource development and fundraising. Once we have an innovative idea or a desire to make a difference and a business plan, the hardest next step is funding. The single biggest barrier to success is often building out a solid financial plan, complete with research data, benchmarks, success metrics and projections. Alongside this, you must also be able to identify potential funders or investors, and know how to present information to them in a way that inspires confidence and motivates action. This course challenges you to break free of old models of “campaigning” for funds, and unleashing the tools of business to make a case for investment in your innovative solutions and important work.

We will navigate the difficult world of developing financial proposals to complement business plans for all sectors of funding including foreign aid, foundations, businesses and individuals. We will delve into how to present our projects with solid metrics and financial projections, as well as the intricacies of developing relationships with potential funders and donors to sustain and grow our work. Furthermore, we will explore the organizational development opportunities, leadership management skills, technology and project management tools that cultivate an effective resource development team.  We will work with real-time case studies and proven mindsets and methods for success.

Estas son algunas de las preguntas que los participantes en esta clase se preguntarán con respecto a los  programas que están implementando en sus organizaciones y aprenderán a buscar las respuestas a cada una.
