Social entrepreneurship

Home / How we engage / Social entrepreneurship

Valuing entrepreneurship is one of ASU’s eight Design Aspirations which means that entrepreneurship is not confined to a single college or school, nor is it housed in one center or institute. Instead, faculty, staff and students in every discipline and at every level work to identify and meet local and global needs.
