What is SEAD?
In 2012, Hillary Clinton announced that CASE and Duke were awarded a $10 million contract from USAID to help scale and capitalize global health social ventures around the world. The Social Entrepreneurship Accelerator at Duke, now in its retrospective stage, was a major initiative of CASE and included in-depth coaching and consulting by CASE faculty, staff and students with global health social entrepreneurs aiming to scale their impact.
SEAD worked with organizations across Duke to mobilize a community of practitioners, investors, policymakers, faculty, staff, and students to identify, assess, help develop, build capacity of, and scale solutions, technologies, and business models for healthcare delivery and preventive services in developing countries around the world.
The five core goals of SEAD consisted of:
Build Global Health Pipeline
Develop Resources and Capabilities
Leverage Impact Investing
Engage Students and Faculty
