ICSB GLOBAL is excited to announce the new cohort of the ICSB Global Certificate Program in Social Entrepreneurship!
With global and national supply chain disruption, we need to decide how best to progress as entrepreneurs and supporters of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). Acting locally is no longer an option, but rather it is the foundation of our new normal. In harnessing regional support, however, we need to center our entrepreneurial activities socially. Socially and humanely-focused entrepreneurship is our only option to continue doing the necessary work to create a flourishing new normal post-COVID-19.
This Global Certificate program will not only set you ahead because of its internationally renowned standing but more so as it will prepare you to engage with the inequalities in your local community from a global perspective. As globalization has evolved to its COVID-19 form, it feels that we are now more connected than ever. Let us utilize this power of togetherness to learn best practices from the leading entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship researchers around the world while gaining the real skills to establish these social entrepreneurial ideas in our communities.
Are you an individual, entrepreneur, entrepreneurial group, start-up? Are you interested in creating, funding, and implementing solutions to social, environmental, and cultural issues in your community?
If you answered yes to either of the questions above, then you must register for the ICSB Global Social Entrepreneurship Certificate (ICSB Global SE). There are only 25 spots available for those looking to advance their entrepreneurial knowledge and skills and learn from the most creative and innovative minds in the industry.
