Academies for Social Entrepreneurship’s programs focus on equipping not-for-profit executives with the resources they need to build high performing earned income ventures. In the past five years, ASE has produced twenty regional social enterprise “Academies” and three social innovation “fast pitches”. The unique combination of training, mentoring and pitch training has expanded capacity for approximately two hundred social entrepreneurs, producing more than 8 million dollars in new investment and earned income streams. Post-Academy surveys indicate that two thirds of participants generate new revenue within two years of participating. 94% say that the Academy had a valuable, significant impact in the way that they manage their business and recommend it to their peers.
