Workshop on the way for social change entrepreneurs

September 2, 2013 by  

A workshop to encourage social entrepreneurs will be held in a few days’ time at the Hub in Oakland, 20 minutes from Hayward, designed for those who have a desire to make a change in their community and the world.

Topics for the workshops include how to build an entrepreneurial team, design a pilot, assess impact, reach out to customers, develop a business concept, and raise funds.

One-on-one workshops with a mentor are available in 40-minute sessions for those who want more personalized assistance. Instructors include Shalaka Joshi, a consultant for Toniic; Sanjeeve Khagram, the founder and chairman of Innovations for Scaling Impact, and Eric Sorensen, executive director of Carbon Roots International.

Sorensen will share what he has learned from his work in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. He has been making inroads in the use of sustainable charcoal. Khagram is a leader in the field of globalization and transnationalism, human security, and sustainable development.

Joshi has worked for many businesses, both profit and nonprofit, around the world, including the United Nations Children’s Fund and the GiveIndia Foundation. She currently is serving on the management committee at the Harvard Business School Social Enterprise Alumni Association.

Beginning at 1:30 pm, this event is set to take place this Saturday, September 7. The Hub is located at 1423 Broadway in Oakland, just a short drive from Hayward. Business card printing can be very useful in maintaining contact with executives and business professionals in both the for profit and nonprofit sectors.
