Students who are interested in making a difference and tackle grand societal challenges are invited to the course. Students are introduced to the theory and practice of entrepreneurship for sustainable development. We present the sustainable business model canvas as a tool for the students to explore their own ideas and to develop a sustainable business. We take a step-by-step approach by: developing a sustainable and customer value proposition; describing key activities, resources and partners; and identifying revenues and cost. Sustainable founders will be invited and present their real ventures and sustainable business models to inspire the students. In the end of the course, each student team will present their refined sustainable business model in the form of a pitch.
