This is a very effective course for anyone who would like to be an innovator or an entrepreneur. It helps with the knowledge and foundation of the necessary skills needed for social innovation.
I didn't know that my mind was capable of thinking as the mind of a change maker until I took this course. This course will help streamline your thought process in trying to solve a problem.
This course has changed my life and I hope I can do even just a tiny bit to change the world. Well worth it for anyone tired of seeing the need for change and not knowing how to take action.
This course was so inspiring. I loved learning about the journey of RLABS and thought Francois and Warren made made the videos engaging and easy to follow. Thank you for this course!

Thank you for this interesting and enriching course. It really helped me define what is closest to my heart, what I feel committed to and where I want to make a difference.
A great introduction to Social Innovation to get you started on your big ideas. I hope that a second course may be created that teaches you to go from idea to business.
Thought provoking course. The weekly videos give a broad outline of the topic and the suggested reading / videos give learners a chance to dive deeper into the subject.
I have learned a lot from this course and it has helped to open my mind to solutions which are already existent within environment rather than inventing something new.
I not only enjoyed the course but was challenged to broaden my thinking and ask more questions. This is a real resource for every social entrepreneur or change maker
This course is planned really well and it helped me in getting out of my comfort zone. It has taught me the necessary skills required to create impact on societies.
A well presented course. It allowed me to dig deeper into some Social challenges that are close to my heart, and gave me tools to start addressing the challenges.
It cover many important aspects of innoation in social works, however the extra reading is not enough to deliver the know how behind the concepts and approaches.
A great course - well presented - with practical applications and insights that can be applied to the learner's own situation and context. Well worth the effort!
Excellent Course! The weekly courses are organized perfectly and the assignments really challenge you to think, get out there and connect with your community.
Excellent course! Instructors, RLabs case study, assignments and interactions with peers! A great introduction to social innovation in a fun and intere
