Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship

Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship

 
The Helene & Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship was created in 2005 to serve the nonprofit community and Pace University. Devoted to honing the risk-taking spirit and managerial skills of nonprofit organizations and social enterprises, the center was launched with a pledge of $5 million from Helene and Grant Wilson, Boston-area entrepreneurs and philanthropists whose involvement with nonprofit organizations convinced them that more-entrepreneurial management can help these organizations increase their impact.

Mission:

The mission of the Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship is "to promote social change through entrepreneurship." The Center furthers this mission by serving students, nonprofit organizations and social enterprises with education, research, communication, and advisory service.

For nonprofit organizations, the Wilson Center provides scholarly research, academic programs, advisory services, and roundtable discussions. For business people the Center will offer a career-changing transition program to help them make the intellectual and cultural transition to work in the nonprofit sector. For Pace students, the Center will add additional nonprofit subject matter and courses to the University's current entrepreneurship offerings, and bring leaders and issues in social entrepreneurship to the campus.
