Groundswell is an alternative business school providing entrepreneurial training, mentorship, and a community of support to people who are making the world a better place.

Groundswell works with everyday people to turn ideas into social ventures.  People come to Groundswell to create meaningful work for themselves in a cohort-based, hands-on learning environment.  Our social venture training and mentoring programs put the emphasis on the individual and the community, helping people build sustainable, projects with a little money and a lot of impact.
