11th Annual 2014 Social Entrepreneurship Conference

Last week, D’Amore-McKim School of Business, in partnership with NYU Stern School of Business, welcome 110 researchers from more than 20 countries around the world to The Annual Social Entrepreneurship Conference.

During two days and a half, participants presented and discussed their latest research on social enterprise, strategies for creation and exit, innovative business models such as the Benefit Corporation, psychological attitudes of social entrepreneurs, to name a few topics.

Twenty Professors from the D’Amore-McKim School of Business attended the conference in part or in whole. Dean Hugh Courtney gave inspiring opening remarks, followed by Professor Dennis Shaughnessy from our Social Enterprise Institute, whereas Senior Associate Dean of Faculty and Research Emery Trahan granted the best paper award at a very festive reception held at the Top of The Hub.

The 11th instance of the conference, happening for the first time at Northeastern, was marked by high-quality discussions, outstanding keynote speeches, and more than ever, strong community building.
