Choose your own (ad)venture in social entrepreneurship.

When you join our hands-on social entrepreneurship program YOU get to decide what shape your idea, project or venture takes - and we’ll support you to make it happen. 

You’ll learn how the entrepreneurial mindset and tools can help you take ownership of your own future and put your values to work - for yourself and your community.

Your (ad)venture in making a positive impact can include:

  • Launching a small business or start-up.

  • Creating a not-for-profit organization or community project.

  • Turning your expertise into self-employment.

  • Pursuing a dream job that’s aligned with your purpose.

  • Adding a side gig to what you already do!

Groundswell is an alternative business school where you’ll learn by doing, show up as your whole self, and be surrounded by an inclusive community that chooses cooperation over competition.

FALL program starts October 4, 2019

Get started by coming to a Discover Groundswell session and meet a community of people who are choosing to put their values to work through social entrepreneurship. (and you might get a special discount off tuition too…)
