Penn Social Entrepreneurship Movement Business Incubator Committee Application
Penn Social Entrepreneurship Movement (PennSEM) is a community of entrepreneurs, thinkers, and innovators dedicated to social impact. We help students pursue their interests in the field of social entrepreneurship through discussions, hands on experience, and enriching events and immersion trips. Many of our members have founded their own impactful social enterprises and nonprofits, both on campus and internationally.
This is the application for the business incubator branch of PennSEM. We are looking for creative and dedicated students to help build an incubator for freshmen who are looking to start their social ventures. If you want to start your own venture rather than build the incubator, please only answer the last question.
We would love to get to know more about you through this application.
