Social Venture Capital Clinic

Last month, I returned from USASBE where the Social Venture Clinic, a day-long exposure to raising funds through hands-on workshops was chosen as the finalist in the 3E Learning Competition. What is 3E Learning? This is a community of entrepreneurship educators that share class exercises, games, projects, and experiments that instructors create to enhance teaching in entrepreneurship. The site disseminates these entrepreneurial experiential exercises to other instructors.

In the spirit of sharing, here are the workshops that we are holding tomorrow.
