The best way to learn about entrepreneurship is just to do it. Since I was interested in social entrepreneurship, I spent one summer in Guatemala working with Social Entrepreneur Corps and one semester in Durham working with GreenToGo as part of Social Innovation Practicum.
Social Entrepreneur Corps – 300 hour experience
The summer after my sophomore year, I interned with Social Entrepreneur Corps in Guatemala as part of a DukeEngage program. In addition to providing micro-consulting services for small scale businesses, I also worked on the marketing and branding team for CES (Community Empowerment Solutions), focusing particularly on water filters.

GreenToGo – 150 hour experience
The second semester of my junior year, I had the privilege of working with a team of undergraduate and graduate students at Duke to provide consulting services for GreenToGo, a recyclable food container business. Together, we were able to conduct market research and analyze customer acquisition strategy. Check out my GreenToGo tab for more details!
