Collaboration Yields New Course For Social Entrepreneurs

Warning: shameless plug ahead!

At the first Social Enterprise and Crowdfunding Conference, GoodCrowd13, I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of Heroconomy, Leesa Hubbard. Our meeting proved strategic.

Shortly after the conference, we began collaboration on a course to help startup social entrepreneurs learn the basics so they can have more impact sooner in the life cycle.

Our effort required a year to produce, but the course is now live on Udemy. In fact, if you use the code “LIVE!” you’ll get over 50 percent off the regular price!

On September 29, 2014 at 2:00 Eastern, Leesa will join me to talk about her work at Heroconomy and our new course (did I mention that it is live on Udemy now?).
