The newly-formed division integrates the mission of ALTIS by focusing on a topic of growing importance in the academic and business world: Impact Entrepreneurship. The division is dedicated to the diffusion of a culture of entrepreneurship oriented towards the socio-economic development of the southern hemisphere (Africa, India and Latin America) aimed at the creation of new enterprises - both profit and non profit organisations - characterised by significant social and environmental values. The division operates through training projects aimed at current and potential entrepreneurs in the southern hemisphere, research projects on various aspects of the theme of Impact Entrepreneurship in collaboration with European and U.S. centres and field projects in the contexts of the southern hemisphere in partnership with Italian companies and foundations. Business modelling projects with a high social and environmental impact are also being implemented to be disseminated and replicated in different areas of the southern hemisphere.
