Build Social 7 Application
Build Social is a 9-week social entrepreneurship course for individuals and nonprofits who wish to use business models to create positive social change. We define social entrepreneurship as any pursuit of a social mission using commercial means. This program is for innovative individuals who are seeking to start a for-profit company to address Detroit’s social and/or environmental issues, and non-profit organizations seeking to advance and support their missions through the sale of products and services.

*It is highly recommended that you have either taken Build Basics or have the basic understanding of how to write a business plan as well as run a business.

Classes are priced on an affordable, sliding scale, based on annual household income and family size, ranging from $200 – $500. A non-refundable $75 deposit, due by MONDAY, MARCH 27th reserves your seat.
