CASE’s co-founder, J. Gregory Dees, was widely recognized as the father of the academic movement in social entrepreneurship and his writing helped set the standard definitions and frameworks for the field.

CASE continues to work to build a robust infrastructure for academic inquiry and thought leadership in order to help continue to build frameworks and best practices, moving beyond anecdotal evidence to shareable common practices, driving social entrepreneurs to be more effective and scalable and to allow the development of the impact ecosystem.

CASE’s current thought leadership efforts include particular interest in:

  • Scaling
  • Impact investing
  • Tri-sector Leadership
  • and more!
