This university-wide studio and seminar provides students from various programs across The New School an opportunity to develop or expand ideas intended to address pressing social or environmental challenges, so they are prepared to launch a financially-sustainable venture. Incorporating elements of discovery, ideation, prototyping, and user testing, the course takes students through a design-driven process aimed at clarifying the unmet need they have identified, better understanding their target industry, developing a social impact theory of change, validating their assumptions, and considering different approaches to scaling. Venture concepts may take the form of products and services, program strategies, or systems structured within new or existing organizations (both nonprofit or for-profit).
This course is appropriate for students with early-stage ideas and is an elective course for the Graduate Minor in Impact Entrepreneurship.
Students who take this course will be prepared to apply for the Venture Lab or other social entrepreneurship fellowships and competitions.
