“Social entrepreneurship should be seen and accepted as a powerful tool to combat inequality, with capacity to venture into areas where the “failure state” does not allow this to be the most suitable agent for solving people problems.”
Hernán Cheyre, President of the Institute of Social Innovation Directory UDD-FMK
The institute of social innovation responds to a growing need to support the development of innovative projects with high social impact , since they often represent challenges that are unique to the area and needing a special development for it. From this perspective the Institute fulfills a key role is the support, monitoring and training on topics of social innovation, as relevant to the development of our country.
Nickolas Laport, Academic Director – iCubo UDD
Imagine that instead of asking a academic what is teaching or a student what are you studying , we asked what problem are you solving? what’s its purpose? We all have the ability to provide solutions to the problems that affect us as a society, and in that sense the universities are a powerful space to form and inspire professionals with purpose.
