This course introduces students to the field of values-based entrepreneurship and the development of intrapreneurship initiatives. The course explores best practices of starting and growing successful values-driven ventures and intrapreneurial projects. Values-based business (including the worker cooperative) is rapidly gaining attention around the world from entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, foundations, and consulting firms. This course is organized around the following interconnected ideas and objectives: Enterprises: To introduce students to the broad spectrum of emerging global cooperative, social (including environmental and socially responsible) ventures through presentations by guest practitioners; Entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship: To provide a variety of frameworks (social entrepreneurship, cooperative development, biomimicry etc.) for the design of values-based ventures and intrapreneurial projects; Markets: To introduce students to the emerging capital market for values-based ventures and the possible trade-offs in co-operative, environmental, social and financial return expectations from different capital sources, including venture firms and foundations; Management: To introduce students to the challenging and paradoxical management decisions inherent in managing for multiple-bottom-line objectives in entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial contexts; Metrics - To orient students on how to apply and critique models for assessing, measuring, and reporting on cooperative, environmental, social, and community impact in entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial contexts. Note: This course is offered in the Winter term.
