Smeal Alum Supporting Social Entrepreneurs in Kenya
Had the opportunity yesterday to speak with Smeal MBA alum Paul Belknap who has been working with social entrepreneurs around the world since earning his MBA. Most recently Paul has been with Villgro Kenya.
Partner of Villgro Innovations Foundation in India, Villgro Kenya is an early-stage social enterprise incubator that supports innovative businesses in the healthcare and life sciences sector.
Smeal's new center for the business of sustainability seeks to provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to work with social entrepreneurs around the world. This is already happening thanks to a partnership between our MBA net impact chapter and Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship (HESE) led by John Gershenson in engineering.
