Call for Case Studies: Social Venture Institute

Posted by on August 19, 2005

We are accepting applications for Case Studies for this year?s Social Venture Institute, to be held November 16-17 at the People?s Ethical Society in Philadelphia. Applications are due via e-mail by this Friday, August 26th. To obtain an application contact Leanne Krueger-Braneky, SBN Director, at or 215-386-5211 ext. 104.

Case Studies are the core of the Social Venture Institute model and where some of the greatest learning happens. In selecting case studies, we look for several key components: enterprises at various stages of growth, well-framed and articulated problem statements, and opportunities to draw larger lessons for the whole group. We ask you to focus on one major strategic challenge that you are currently facing.

Please choose a challenge that fits into one of these categories:
Sales and Marketing: Overcoming Sales & Marketing Challenges
Managing Organizational Growth: Human Resources and Management Transitions
Business Financing: Raising Equity and Debt Capital
Full instructions are included in the Case Study Application.

Even if your application is not chosen as a case study, you will still have the chance to get feedback on your business issue during the Problem Solving Sessions if you attend the Social Venture Institute. So mark your calendars for November 16-17th and plan to attend this year?s SVI!

Questions should be directed to Leanne Krueger-Braneky, SBN Director, at or 215-386-5211 ext. 104.
