"The Social Impact Incubator served as a launching pad for my business, and helped me crystalize a multi-year plan to reach my impact and growth goals. Through mentorship, coaching and a sense of community, I was able to envision new avenues of possibilities for my startup. This was a memorable experience shared between passionate and purposeful entrepreneurs, and I feel empowered to take active steps toward the next phase of my business."
On Jan. 24, 2022, the CEC welcomed its first cohort of the inaugural Social Impact Incubator program. Fifteen participants – DePaul students and alumni as well as community members – gathered on Monday evenings to learn from entrepreneurs, DePaul faculty and subject matter experts.
