Harvard Computer Society Tech for Social Good’s Wintersession program provides a unique opportunity for students to experience social entrepreneurship and pick up valuable skills for their future endeavors. Throughout this ‘boot camp’, students interested in being social entrepreneurs will walk through all the key processes behind starting a social impact venture. We'll invite a series of speakers and host our own workshops and exercises throughout this two-week program to educate, and prepare our participants. At the end of the program, we'll put together a panel of judges to evaluate our program participant's ideas. In teams of 4, they will take an idea from conception to prototype, with exclusive access to skill-focused workshops and exercises, talks with industry specialists, and an opportunity to pitch their ideas to other social entrepreneurs. Funds will support social entrepreneurship teams, full program socials, and prizes to further encourage groups to implement their social enterprise ideas.
