Here at IE, we embrace our mission to shape leaders with global vision, an entrepreneurial mindset and a humanistic approach to drive innovation and change in organizations. Specifically, IE’s Social Innovation Initiative aims to support IE in achieving its mission by instilling in our community the purposeful search for positive impact, providing the necessary education, experience and support that will shape them to make the world a better place. We focus on three main drivers for Social Innovation, consistent with the identity and values of IE: Entrepreneurship (with a focus in Social Entrepreneurship but not exclusively), Technology applied to Social Innovation and Conscious Leadership.

We work towards our mission by promoting Social Innovation academic content across IE’s Schools and Programs, encouraging research in Social Innovation and reaching out to organizations and partners interested in collaborating with IE’s Social Innovation Initiative in achieving its mission. We are here to offer you the tools that can prepare you to make a positive difference in the world. Join us!
