Through the Development Bank of Latin America, 3 students from Tech, Guadalajara campus, participate in a social service program. Moreover, students will learn about the implementation of impact investing.
During 90 days of collaboration, 3 students and 2 professors of Tech Guadalajara will be part of the program “Investment Learning Community with Impact.” The event of the Development organizes the Bank of Latin America. This, as part of their social service with a value of 140 hours in which they will solve a case related to the generation of sustainable business proposals. In conjunction with the Chilean organization “2811.”
Different scenarios students will do
Students will make deliverables to address the issue in different scenarios. The learning community will give them the tools to develop competencies on the trends of impact investing and regenerative economy. Patricia Cuevas, from Tech’s Innovative Social Entrepreneurship area, points out that it is about: “bringing students from different careers together so that they can learn about trends in the regenerative economy, impact investment, awareness and their relationship to money…”.
This will allow them to learn how to measure the different indicators of a company’s environmental impact and what why do they use it. So that the business proposals are where future professionals involve those trends.
Opinion about the project
Daniel commented that “the project caught my attention since I saw it at the campus Social Service Fair. Many of the social challenges we see now are due to social excesses, and this program can be an engine of change to heal those situations. He added that “combining business with the career of LRI, which is a social science, will allow me to integrate both approaches when I am in professional life.”
For his part, David highlighted his interest in knowing how to help the situation of the environment and social bio impact to maximize strategies and knowledge of operations in the industry. “I believe that logistical processes can generate a change in these concepts to modify the linear method of extraction and production, change that model to have a friendly impact,” he said.
A network of universities
The link with this community is through Ashoka U. A network of universities with an interest in social entrepreneurship. Because Tech Guadalajara is recognized by this organization as Changemaker Campus.
Sergio Amezcua said the program will allow him to know how to apply the most sustainable business operations in the long term and gain knowledge for other projects and implement solutions from the financial side. An ally of the campus Innovative Entrepreneurship Zone (Ei) will also participate. At the end of the period, they will make a presentation of deliverables to university authorities and related organizations.
The activities include a tour with various social innovation organizations linked to Ashoka to strengthen contacts of the participants. This is the first time this program works. Both Tech and the related organizations will be looking for student participation to grow and continue with the same theme in the following semesters to study impact investing.
