Stories from the 2016 Finger Lakes Social Entrepreneurship Institute
We asked over 25 attendees to share their stories and perspectives.
The Finger Lakes Social Entrepreneurship Institute is an annual event hosted by the Center for Transformative Action.
The Center for Transformative Action helps create communities that are socially just, ecologically sound, and work for everyone. CTA does this through educational programs, and by supporting system-changing projects with incubator and fiscal sponsorship services. CTA projects work to transform the structures, as well as the habits of mind, that produce inequities in our communities, country, and the world. Through their innovative methods, as well as their successes and challenges, they show us what is possible.
CTA is an educational non-profit organization affiliated with Cornell University.
What is Social Entrepreneurship?
