Social Impact Scholars is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to accelerating social change by getting more business leaders, researchers, and university students “in the game” of converting major social challenges into profitable business opportunities.
We teach and explore this mindset at no cost, allowing both our Scholars and our clients to think bigger about how business and society can more profitably and effectively address our world’s greatest challenges.
The Social Impact Scholars is an experiential learning space for students to explore how businesses can make a positive impact on society beyond traditional philanthropic or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts. By learning and helping companies impact society more positively, this next generation of leaders will better run and envision the organizations of tomorrow.
The Social Impact Scholars is looking to conduct research about small businesses who positively impact their communities. SIS companies are for-profit enterprises that typically address at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) in their mission statement (or would like to).
