Fowler Center hosts entrepreneurs from the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative with CCWA

On October 12th, invited by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, the Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit hosted a presentation to a group of 11 entrepreneurs from Latin America and the Caribbean. The Fowler Center discussion was part of the visitors’ stay in Cleveland hosted by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs as part of the Young Leaders of the American Initiative, a U.S. Department of State-sponsored program designed to bring 250 promising young entrepreneurs to the United States each year to conduct a fellowship with a local business or nonprofit organization.

The Fowler Center portion of the presentation included an introduction to practices for revolutionizing business and nonprofit management for social impact through the model of “Appreciative Inquiry.”

In addition to learning about the Fowler Center’s focus on how business can “do good and do well,” the guests heard from Michael Goldberg, assistant professor, design and innovation, about his work with entrepreneurs in Cleveland and around the world as well as his MOOC and recently published book: Beyond Silicon Valley: How One Online Course Helped Support Global Entrepreneurs.
