Keith B. Key Buckeye Social Entrepreneurship Program (BSEP) taking applications

The Office of Student Life is pleased to announce that the Keith B. Key Buckeye Social Entrepreneurship Program (BSEP) is taking applications for the 2023 cohort. 

BSEP is open to all Ohio State students (graduate/professional and undergraduate) of any major who have a special interest in social entrepreneurship, social change, or making a difference through business ventures. The program guides students in launching successful social entrepreneurial companies, by offering resources to develop a sustainable business model, access funding and solidify their meaningful social impact. Applicants can be in any stage of their social entrepreneurial journey from idea formation to already having a solid business idea/plan. 

Students chosen for the BSEP program will have the opportunity to participate in a 14-week business accelerator through SEA Change to help develop their ideas and prepare to pitch their businesses to community leaders and investors for access to funding and resources.

BSEP is accepting applications through October 27 at 11:59 p.m. Learn more and apply today at
