The Williams School’s J. Lawrence Connolly Center for Entrepreneurship hosted its first Social Entrepreneurship Summit on May 2.

When business administration professor Drew Hess taught a winter term course on social entrepreneurship, he was overwhelmed by all the ways his students wanted to change the world.

“Across campus, there were these great student-led causes trying to initiate big, bold change, and we thought it made a lot of sense to give them some of the same tools and support we’d give to any student startups,” said Hess.
