Description

Established in 2007, the Penn Social Entrepreneurship Movement (PennSEM) is a community of entrepreneurs, innovators, and consultants based out of the University of Pennsylvania and dedicated to social impact. Our passion for sustainable change drives us to build new social enterprises, support existing ones through pro-bono consulting services, and grow the movement across campus and beyond. PennSEM is recruiting for our two branches: Consultants AND Spire Fellows.

We consult for real social enterprises. PennSEM Consulting teams have consulted for 100+ different businesses, ranging from new ventures to $130+ billion investment management firms, offering robust recommendations and acquiring valuable skills and experiences. Consultants also have access to special professional development workshops, networking events, and other opportunities. No prior experience required!

Spire, PennSEM's impact accelerator and Penn's only student-run startup accelerator focused on social impact ventures, is dedicated to helping students build their own impact ventures from the ground up. The fall fellowship includes comprehensive workshops, notable speakers, office hours, and written resources and culminates in a pitch competition with angel investors and VCs.
