Where are we going with this?

Students of Social Entrepreneurship need to come up with ideas for projects.

How do we (educators and students) e/valuate these ideas?

Some of the Ideas will be taken further becoming projects or larger scale initiatives with multiple projects.

How do we (educators, students, beneficiaries, funders and other stakeholders) valuate these?

How do we assess the impact of a social entrepreneurship initiative with a large portfolio of projects?

What questions should we be asking to resolve this issue?

This module is about valuation capacity building.

See discussion.
