Advancing Social Enterprise
New Partnership Bridges Theory and Practice
The Center for Social Value Creation is pleased to announce
the formation of a partnership with the Maryland chapter of the
Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) this winter. The partnership
will give students the opportunity to explore more deeply the
evolving field of social enterprise, interact closely with
social entrepreneurs throughout the state, and gain hands-on experience in the field.
SEA is the largest membership organization for social
enterprises in North America - defined as organizations and
businesses that apply market-based strategies in solving today's
social problems. The Maryland chapter officially launched in
SEA actively brings together the diverse field of social
enterprise by serving as an advocate for the field, a hub of
information and education, and the builder of a vibrant and
growing community of social enterprises.
The center and SEA will collaborate in the spring on a series
of events aimed at fostering the local social enterprise
community, connecting resources and strengthening opportunities
for funding and legislative support.
