We believe in the value and potential of a close relationship between business schools and the third sector, contributing not only to the capacitation of the social organizations in management competencies but also to the generation of more research opportunities about hybrid organizations and the social sector.
One of the goals of the Social Leapfrog program is the bidirectional knowledge transfer. As such, we hope not only to capitalize on the resources and knowledge of Nova’s community to capacitate the participant social organizations, but also to learn with the reality and specificities of these hybrid organizations, which combine the business and social dimensions, and give rise to new research opportunities within the school.
Additionally, the whole program being realized in constant interaction, reflection, and co-creation with Nova SBE’s community (students, Alumni, faculty, staff, and partners) contributes to its growth and makes it a very enriching experience for all stakeholders.
This said, since the beginning of the program, the entire project and process have been documented, and all templates used in each stage have been archived, facilitating its availability on the program’s website in order to be replicable in other geographies, adapting to its reality.
