The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), in collaboration with the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE), are sponsoring the 2013 Midwest Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship from May 20-21 in Kansas City, Missouri. This Symposium will offer a forum for academics, as well as interested practitioners, to (i) advance their understanding of social entrepreneurship, (ii) exchange knowledge and experience regarding entrepreneurship in general, and (iii) shape the future of the emerging field of social enterprise.
The Symposium begins with Opening Remarks at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 20, followed by morning and afternoon workshops, as well as presentations at a luncheon and early evening reception that day. The Tuesday, May 21, schedule includes a morning workshop, luncheon presentations, and, in the afternoon, a business plan competition showcasing socially entrepreneurial initiatives developed by students participating in The Aaron L. Levitt Social Entrepreneurship Challenge. All workshops and events will take place at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation Conference Center (4801 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, Missouri, 64110).
