SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP FUND

The Social Entrepreneurship Fund supports burgeoning social entrepreneurial students with $5,000 in start-up funds to help bring their business plans to life.

 StFX Students:

Do you have an idea for a social enterprise?

St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) has developed an ecosystem for young entrepreneurs who care about giving back to their communities. In collaboration with the StFX Discover Box and the Gerald Schwartz School of Business, this newly established Social Entrepreneurship Fund supports burgeoning social entrepreneurial students who need modest start-up funds to bring their business plans to life.

 

Initiated by StFX alumnus and entrepreneur Alex Dorward ’11, along with support from several Xaverian friends and colleagues, the Social Entrepreneurship Fund provides $5,000 to a student to offset business costs, along with mentorship from the StFX DiscoverBox, Gerald Schwartz School of Business faculty and/or Xaverian entrepreneurs. Any full-time StFX student is eligible to apply.
