What’s coming up this year?

Oxford Radcliffe Camera

The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship is heading into a new era. Over the summer months, we’ve been busy planning our future. Our main aim, as always, will focus on cultivating the next generation of social entrepreneurs, and the leaders who support them through a complementary set of activities. These activities will aim to strengthen the ecosystem for social entrepreneurs, including academic initiatives that advance the field.

What’s new?

We are excited to launch our brand-new Impact Lab onto the Oxford MBA – a set of complimentary co-curricular programmes for students pursuing careers as socially entrepreneurial leaders. We have developed initial modules for the course which includes topics such as; impact measurement, systems change, and design thinking.

Emerge conference – a fallow year

With a busy term ahead, we’ve decided to take a break from running our annual Emerge conference this year. After ten years of delivery we’re letting Emerge go fallow for 2018, but we hope to be back next year with a bountiful crop of content to excite and inspire!

Skoll Speaker Series

Although Emerge is not running this year, we do have been hosting inspiring lunchtime talks, with more to come this term. These are open to all, so please sign up if you wish to attend.

Events for 2019

We will be partnering with our friends at the Entrepreneurship Centre on the Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum (OSEF) on Saturday, 2 March. OSEF is for anyone interested in all things entrepreneurial – from pursuing start-up ideas or leading change within an organisation. Register your interest in attending.

Of course, the Skoll World Forum will be back from 9-12 April. We will be hosting several ecosystem events during the week, not to mention the abundance of other Skoll Week activities going on including the public plenaries. Stay tuned for more detail in the coming year.
