The Turner Family Center for Social Ventures is an interdisciplinary, student-led organization committed to developing socially and environmentally conscious leaders and doers. We prepare our students to drive systemic, impactful change through market-driven forces and enterprise. We provide resources and opportunities to leverage and combine the individual strengths of Vanderbilt University graduate students, faculty, and business partners.
WE’RE BETTER TOGETHER.
The Turner Family Center for Social Ventures builds on the success of the Owen Graduate School of Management’s Project Pyramid, serving as a platform for ALL 8 Vanderbilt graduate schools so that students can develop business-related skills to engage with social impact through their own disciplines.
It wasn’t until recently that I realized I didn’t have to decide between social benefit and profitable scale, but could merge the two in the form of a social venture.”
ACTION IS AT OUR CORE.
Hear from students, faculty, staff, and partner organizations about their personal experiences with the TFC, and how they are actively utilizing enterprise to alleviate poverty.
