BackNews & Events

18th October 2022

The Royal College of Art

As part of an Aspect-funded project, a team from the School of Design of the Royal College of Art is developing a design-driven training programme to support social entrepreneurship (‘the creation and management of organisations who pursuit a social mission through their economic activity.)

Following a literature review, this survey aims to deepen the understanding of the competencies needed for social entrepreneurship through real-world insights from practitioners and key stakeholders. The project team is looking for founders, aspiring founders (students), educators (university teams running student entrepreneurship programmes) and ideally people working on incubators to complete and share the survey. Respondents will have access to the training materials once the project ends in March 2023.  If you have any questions, please get in touch with Dr Nicolás Rebolledo at
