Universities and Social Enterprise: Scaling for Greater Impact

Canadian development NGO World University Service of Canada (WUSC) has published a new report entitled “Social Enterprise and Post-Secondary Institutions:  Optimizing for Development Impact.”  From the Antigonish and Desjardins cooperative movements to the current crop of social-purpose tech start-ups, Canadian universities have been engaged with social business for nearly a century.  The paper explores how these institutions can work in reciprocal partnerships with social businesses and universities in the global South to support ecosystem development and enterprise growth for sustainable development.  Access the report here
