History of COSI

In 2010 a small group convened in Montreal to discuss how to collaborate and build a community of scholars with an interest at the intersection of social innovation and social movements.  This culminated in the official launch of COSI at the first annual COSI workshop. Those founding Steering Committee members include:

– Tina Dacin, Queen’s School of Business, Queen’s University
– Jerry Davis, Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan
– Klaus Weber, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University

The first COSI workshop was in collaboration with local hosts, Julie Battilana and Alnoor Ebrahim, of Harvard Business School and its affiliated Social Enterprise Initiative.

The group developed a mission is to foster and advance the sharing of insights around teaching, data, theory and methods in the social innovation space, and to provide focused opportunities to mentor junior scholars in the domain.  The first workshop focused on roundtable discussions on paper development, presentations from junior scholars on their ongoing work and a dialogue on how to facilitate interaction amongst the group.


Getting to Ann Arbor

Our events will be held at the Ross School of Business (701 Tappan St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109) and our opening session on Friday will be at the Executive Residence (710 East University [at Hill]), where most of you will be staying.  The Executive Residence is your first stop to check in for the meeting.

Detroit Metro is North America’s greatest airport and is only 20 miles from Ann Arbor.  Unfortunately, it is not overrun with cabs.  Here are some options:

1. Pre-arrange a car service

  • Metro Car (800-456-1701)
  • Royal Limousine (866-697-6925)
  • Golden Limo (800-300-5151)

2. Take a bus (http://michiganflyer.com/) – runs 8-12 trips per day

3. Rent a car (surprisingly cheap on weekends; can share with other conferees).  Park at Forest Street lot, 1.5 block from Executive Residence, and we will provide voucher

4. Uber/Lyft/other ride-hailing software

Testimonials

“Our community is purposefully small, not dominated by any one school or perspective, and our objectives remain quite simple.  Our goal is to build a community of scholars who teach and conduct research in this area” says Tina Dacin.
“It was an extremely valuable experience for all of us, so thank you so much for the invitation, for the work, and for bringing us together.  I very much look forward to our work in building and strengthening this community” wrote Rodrigo Canales, Assistant Professor at Yale School of Management in a follow up note to COSI after the first workshop.
This message was echoed by Wendy Smith, Assistant Professor of Management at the University of Delaware, who commented, “It was an honor and a pleasure to be included in this group.  I know that a colleague and I received great feedback on both our theory and empirical projects on hybrid organizations.  We really appreciated the opportunity to share our work with this community and look forward to future opportunities to connect with the COSI community.”
