Social Enterprise Group at Cornell (SEGC) is an undergraduate student organization at Cornell University dedicated to market-driven solutions to social issues. We realize this mission through student education and hands-on consulting experience with socially responsible organizations and businesses.
Our Education Series pulls on the knowledge of past students, current students, and Cornell University faculty to produce lectures on the social enterprise spectrum, the frameworks used to approach social and business problems, and presentation skills needed to present these ideas.
SEGC partners with social enterprises to analyze and solve problems that have real impact in their respective communities. Most recently, SEGC worked with a non-profit women's organization to analyze and recommend sustainable growth strategies.
SEGC has engaged multiple impact investing organizations both within and without Ithaca. Additionally, SEGC regularly invites speakers with real-world experience in the impact investing space to share their insights.
Our students are dedicated to making an impact beyond the classroom. We recruit for drive and skill set, but what's most important to our team above all is demonstrated passion for improving one's communities.
Creating a Social Impact
We love immersing ourselves in new projects and industries with our clients, but we also hope to make a difference right on our very campus in Ithaca, NY. Social Enterprise Group at Cornell promotes social impact as a career through on-campus events, conference attendance, and open lectures.
