        International Center for Social Entrepreneurship (ICSE) was founded in March, 2010 for the goal of supporting those individuals who wish to contribute to solving social issues through social innovations.  ICSE is a spin-off of the Social Entrepreneurship Program at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), which had been conducted from April of 2006 to March of 2010.


        The “Social Innovation” is the introduction of new concepts, methods, and structures to address social problems such as poverty, unemployment, human rights, and environmental problems.  Those leaders of these activities are called “Social Entrepreneurs”.  We, ICSE, will support “Social Entrepreneurs”.


        ICES is currently managed on voluntary-basis.
