Where are we going with this?

Not every learner on this course will become a social entrepreneur. However, every participant will learn about social entrepreneurship and gain a broader perspective on the types of work one can do which are relevant to society. The course covers a range of topics which are of general value (not only for aspiring social entrepreneurs).
