The Elizabethtown College Brethren heritage of stewardship values and focus on educate for service provided the perfect platform for the Social Enterprise Institute @ Elizabethtown College (institute). Founded in the fall of 2013, the Institute has a mission to help address some of the world’s most pressing social issues through technology innovation transfer strategies and social enterprise development. Social Enterprises are businesses that exist to fulfill their specific social purpose, operate profitably and make a measurable sustainable difference in individual lives. In 2016, the Institute expanded its branding strategy into the Social Enterprise Service Group, recognizing the broad scope of services and resources it has to offer in transforming social enterprise ideas into scalable and sustainable social impact through the development of social enterprise.
