Apply to participate in a social entrepreneurship program next year

Applications are now open for the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit‘s ThinkImpact social entrepreneurship program.

The mission of the ThinkImpact program is to develop and promote businesses that create positive impact for communities, societies and the environment around the world. Participation in the ThinkImpact program gives students the opportunity to attend virtual and in person workshops together with other Case Western Reserve University students and with students from around the globe for international exposure and the cultural exchange of ideas.

During the program, students will learn about how entrepreneurship can be used to solve social and environmental problems and build their own project. Through weeks of self-reflection, group discussion, and listening to experts in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, students begin to build their own sustainable business concept and nurture it throughout the program.

The ThinkImpact program will run from September 2024 through April 2025. Students will attend virtual bi-weekly sessions with our international participants as well as weekly coaching sessions with their CWRU cohort. Participants will be expected to present their solution and work in April.

Applications will be open through July 31 at 11:59 p.m. The first round of applicants will be notified of their status in the program on Aug. 16. Any remaining spots will be filled thereafter.
