Interested in social entrepreneurship? Supporting social entrepreneurs? Then plan on joining us Thursday, 10 February and Friday, 11 February 2011 for our launch celebration of the Peery Social Entrepreneurship Program. We are excited to host the first TEDx BYU event, a prestigious conference series. The following is a peek at the two-day celebration:

Thursday, 10 February—First annual Innovation in Social Entrepreneurship Case (ISE) Competition. This is a live case competition on Fundación Paraguaya, a world renowned and highly recognized social venture. Teams of graduate students from five other top universities will be helping create a solution for Fundación Paraguaya. Social entrepreneur Martin Burt and other well-known social entrepreneurs will be judging. Thursday evening there will be a social entrepreneurship film screening, created by a BYU alumnus, that is being entered in multiple film competitions. This event will be the documentary’s premiere to the public. More details to come.

Friday, 11 February—ISE Case Competition Finals. The final three competitors will be sharing their solutions. Also that day will include the TEDx BYU Conference.
