about Social Entrepreneur College

Greetings from the President

Social Entrepreneur College (SEC) is the first institution established for aiming to develop social entrepreneur in Japan, and has contributed to the society for a decade. Those graduates are now more than 600 and are active in wide range of fields.

In this country, many people have profited greatly from current social system for a long time. However, social disparity, poverty issue, and environmental problem, these negative aspects of current system have been actualized in recent years, and assumed serious proportions year by year.

At the same time, we believe there are many potential business opportunities.
We are convinced human resources really required is who doesn't away from this brutal reality and is able to confront the difficulties.

Social entrepreneurs who have attitudes making our world to be better is expected. Let's get start thinking about social issues and how to contribute to our society throughout social business.

There is no better happiness than "using your talents to help someone".
