Sponsored by the Center for Social Impact Strategy at the University of Pennsylvania, the Global Social Impact House (GSIH) is a seven-day residential training program for early stage social entrepreneurs to advance their social ventures.
Two dozen students who successfully complete the University of Pennsylvania's Coursera Course on Social Entrepreneurship and that have innovative social enterprises will be selected to participate in the program. The program will train the fellows with tools and skills in leadership, business development and design thinking. Fellows will get the chance to collaborate with one another and build meaningful relationships with a global network of social entrepreneurs while living and working together in a beautiful Island lodge in Vieques, Puerto Rico. Applications close on October 24, 2014. Selection priority will be given to students enrolled in the Signature Track.
