and after preparation from their professor, students identify an innovation, conduct an in-person interview with a
business leader, and then write about what they learned. The students’
stories are published on AIM2Flourish.com to inspire other students,
business leaders, and investors as part of an engaged global community. AIM2Flourish.com is now the world's largest collection of student-written mini-case studies about business innovations for the SDGs.
