Social Entrepreneurship

The SHIFT Program

Through shifting business mindsets, we're creating businesses with impact.

FastStartDC’s SHIFT program stream is designed to help Durham College students who are looking to launch social enterprises that have positive impact on environmental, social or economic issues affecting communities.

The SHIFT program stream is closely tied to EnactusDC. While our student entrepreneurs access expert support from FastStart to develop their social enterprises, some business ideas turn into EnactusDC projects that the team works on over the course of the year and beyond. EnactusDC helps SHIFT businesses further their community impact while FastStart helps our students build sustainable business models.
