Boost

The CSE Boost Program is a ten-week, intensive workshop for early-stage social organizations that have already entered the market with their product or service. Boost participants learn business fundamentals, improve their strategic thinking, articulate a business plan, and develop a business model that demonstrates social impact, growth, and long-term financial sustainability.

By the end of the program, participating enterprises have the strategies and materials to grow their organization in a financially sustainable manner and apply for the funding to reach the next level of growth. They will also receive mentoring from successful entrepreneurs to work on their growth plans for a six-week period after the Boost. Additionally, each graduating Boost participant will have access to the Center for Social Entrepreneurship and our capacity development partners.

The result: you will have a stronger business, increased social impact, and readiness to receive investment to scale your enterprise.
