Social Enterprise and Innovation Fellows Program

Global Human Development's Social Enterprise and Innovation Fellows Program (SEIF) is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the role of the private sector, including domestic and multinational companies and social enterprises, in promoting sustainable development in developing and emerging markets, and to prepare them to become leaders and change-agents in a rapidly changing world.

Through participation in the innovative, hands-on SEIF Program, which includes skills-based courses, a Social Innovation Lab, client-engagement projects, private-sector mentors, and networking opportunities with leaders in impact investing, social entrepreneurship and the private sector, fellows develop strong intrapreneurial and entrepreneurial skillsets and become equipped to design and assess business proposals for viability and impact. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in courses and extracurricular events in collaboration with the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation, the McDonough School of Business’ Global Social Enterprise Initiative and the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative.
