How was #AirMOOC designed?

We take a curative approach trying to connect the dots, with a specific focus on producing cutting-edge material on "impact" and "investing". We build on existing prime content when fitting. Many thanks for letting us feature some material to: Professor Kai Hockerts of Copenhagen Business School ("CBS courses on Social Entrepreneurship"), Björn Strüwer and Christina Möhrle of Roots of Impact and Shannon Music of VIVA Idea ("Social Finance Academy"), and the EU Interreg Social(i)Makers project ("Social Innovation Academy").
