This class had much hope, with the promise of select students getting to go to a retreat/mini-incubator. But it was sadly, a waste of time. The practices advocated by the professors may be suitable for Fortune 500 companies doing the same old same old, but not for innovative social entrepreneurs. The only thing differentiating Fortune 500 practices in this course were the things you would do to get rich foundations to give your never-make-a-profit idea money to burn. Notably, there was nothing about testing ideas out on potential customers/creating some sort of mockup/prototype. Silicon Valley would laugh at such a course. At or around the same time there were 3 other Social Entrepreneurship MOOCs (1 on Coursera and 2 on Iversity). All could use a good dose of Silicon Valley realism, but the closest to breaking the decades old business practices was the Social Entrepreneurship MOOC from Copenhagen. As it is being run again in April ... This class had much hope, with the promise of select students getting to go to a retreat/mini-incubator. But it was sadly, a waste of time.

As it is being run again in April 2015, I recommend that one over the other 3, but be sure to take Steve Blank's Startup MOOC on Udacity (which is always available) first.
