Social Entrepreneurship Made Easy

Educational resources, tools and support to help people start businesses for social and environmental good.

Learn how to start a social enterprise.

Our incubation program helps turn ideas into successful businesses for social and environmental good. This comprehensive cohort-based program helps social change leaders and socially minded entrepreneurs refine their ideas and develop strategies to increase the chances of success, growth, and long-term sustainability of their social enterprises.

Joining the Impact Toolbox social enterprise incubation program was a turning point for our venture. The program was organized and insightful, giving us the tools we needed to grow. The mentorship was fantastic, and the skills we learned in financial management and strategic planning have been invaluable. Connecting with other social entrepreneurs was inspiring. We shared ideas, learned from each other, and celebrated our successes together. Thanks to Impact Toolbox, we feel more equipped and confident to continue our mission of delivering free period products to women’s doorsteps.

Impact Toolbox allowed my students to take a crash course in entrepreneurship without impacting my teaching that was focused on the capstone course. Considering this is an independent online learning course, it's extremely valuable that an actual person at Impact Toolbox read my students' submissions and gave them feedback, much like they receive in their regular university courses.

Impact Toolbox program allowed me to gain a new understanding of myself and how similar, yet different, my perspective is to others around the globe. Getting to know my colleagues throughout the process and hearing their perspectives was incredible. The biggest lesson I learned was how quickly someone’s story or perspective could open your own eyes to a new way of thinking.
