Social Enterprise Academy Venture Showcase

The UCLA Department of Economics, along with UCLA Alumni Career Programs and The Academies for Social Entrepreneurship hosted the eighth annual UCLA Social Enterprise Academy Venture Showcase & Symposium.

This event featured three teams of students representing local community organizations pitching the business ventures they developed in our social enterprise courses Econ 173A and 173B for $30,000 in cash awards.

The video here  shows an example of a pitch made by one of the teams in this year’s academy in the preliminary round of our venture competition together with the feedback from judges in this first round of competition.
