Sustain Sewanee was proud to help co-sponsor the first Sewanee Soup event, hosted by the Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Club, which took place this Tuesday.

Proposals to help support a Green Space, an Eco-art Competition, the Places Project, and Franklin County High School DIVAS project were presented. Attendees then voted for the proposal they thought would benefit their community the most.

Nora Vinas, student leader for the Franklin County High School DIVAS (Dreamer Independent Valuable Accomplished Strong) project was awarded the crowdfunding to create a scholarship which will help empower the group of at-risk high school girls she works with to go to college.
The Sullivan Foundation, Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Club, and Babson Center for Global Commerce have funding to to help you finance attendance at the Ignite Retreat October 16-18. Talk to Janna at the Babson Center to learn more.

Neighboring Nashville is becoming a hot spot for Social Entrepreneurship. Social Enterprise is not new to Sewanee... alumnae Becca Stevens is evidence of that. But there is growing interest in Social Entrepreneurship on campus, leading a group of students to found an Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation Club and apply for an ESI Theme House. The Babson Center also has partial scholarships to support students who want to learn more about Social Entrepreneurship at the retreats sponsored by Sullivan Foundation Service & Social Entrepreneurship Program.
