Yale Program on Social Entrepreneurship in India : Fall 2010 Opportunity

Dear All,

On behalf of the Yale School of Management, I would like to identify social entrepreneurs working in India who might like to participate in our Fall 2010 program on Global Social Entrepreneurship, offered this year in partnership with Morgan Stanley.

A core goal of the program is to link teams of Yale students with mission-driven social entrepreneurs in India over a four-month long course designed to bring the students and social entrepreneurs together to address a specific management challenge the social enterprise is facing. Key attributes of the course are:

Five teams of 4 to 6 students (advised by India-based Morgan Stanley staff) will work with each social enterprise on a project vital to its continued organizational development;

· The selected social entrepreneurs will visit the Yale campus for an intensive week of faculty and student interaction in September/October 2010;

· Student team members will visit India to get a more practical view of the challenge and to meet each social enterprise’s management, staff and trustees;

· A two-day conference will be held in India in January 2011 at which social enterprise representatives, students, faculty, Morgan Stanley staff, and invited guests will hear and discuss the plans and explore issues of broader import to social entrepreneurs.

We are actively seeking applications from social enterprises in India interested in collaborating with us in next fall’s course.We would very much appreciate your forwarding these to any organizations that you think might be interested in applying.

Thank you, and best regards,
