Catholic Charities USA Social Enterprise Boot Camp 2015

Location: Mendoza College of Business

August 16 - August 20, 2015

 A five-day course held on the campus of Notre Dame, during which participants study and discuss aspects of sustainable social enterprises. The course is facilitated by the Gigot Center and Catholic Charities representatives. Paired with business mentors, as well as upper-level undergraduate and/or graduate students, as available, participants work in teams in a workshop environment to research and analyze the existing or proposed product or service, including market research and competitor analysis; review basic logistics, staffing, and other operational requirements; and work through a sustainability plan that the social enterprise program can then use to guide future operations, seek financing, revive a struggling concern, or help guide future growth.
