How can we make our society a better, kinder and more inclusive place in an age of turbulence and citizen revolt? The practice of social entrepreneurship offers many good examples on how social problems can be turned into business opportunities. This course enables students analyse the complexities of social problems and discuss how social business cater to social needs. Through the lens of three chosen examples – unemployed persons and single mothers, people with disabilities, and older people, the course helps students examine best practices in social innovation and entrepreneurship from global and local practice. In particular, the vision and strategies of major actors within the emerging social ecosystem in creating a better world will be analysed. To help students acquire reflective thinking and creative opportunities, they will be asked to propose projects about how and what sustainable enterprising strategies incorporated into social business for creating social value and innovation.
