Working Groups on Inclusive Entrepreneurship
Community partners and students interested in working together to develop feasibility studies and strategic plans that engage the School with the local community are encouraged to join this initiative. MBA/EMBA students will work on these collaborative projects supervised by Professor Dan Wang, faculty co-director of the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise.
The objective of these projects is to:
- foster collaboration between local business and community leaders and Business School students;
- explore areas including social investing, community development, strengthening venture ecosystems, and entrepreneurial consulting and advising; and
- create a meaningful positive impact by the School with the local community.
During spring semester 2023, working groups developed preliminary feasibility studies and strategic plans related to a collaborative community-related project of their own design or in the following proposed areas:
- developing a neighborhood economic opportunity map in Harlem and Upper Manhattan;
- forging partnerships between local venture accelerators and CBS students;
- establishing a community innovation, retail, and/or co-working space at CBS;
- founding a platform, gallery, and market for local artists; and
- organizing venture clinic programs across NYC neighborhoods.
