ImpactU Launch: Social Ventures 101

Embark on a journey of social entrepreneurship with this ImpactU interactive kick off session for a high level overview of social ventures and why you might want to consider starting one. What to expect:

  • Understanding Social Ventures: Discover what sets social ventures apart from traditional entrepreneurship and explore the unique blend of purpose and profit driving these ventures forward.
  • Key Components of the Social Venture Journey: Gain an overview of essential elements such as business models, funding options, and legal structures tailored specifically to social ventures.
  • Unlocking Impact: Learn about the significance of impact and how to effectively measure and scale it within your venture, amplifying your contribution to positive change.

Nadia Laabs and Emily Dunne bring their expertise from The Impact Collective, which supports organisations in growing their impact.


ImpactU is a collaboration of universities supporting their academics and students to plan and launch social ventures. The ImpactU Social Venture Training Hub will be launching in Autumn 2024 and this kick-off training session gives a flavour of what's to come.
