Ross Open Road

Supporting Social Entrepreneurs Across the Country

Business+Impact believes in the power of bringing the capacity and skills of MBAs to social entrepreneurs in Michigan and around the country. Since its inaugural year in 2014, Business+Impact has sponsored Ross student teams to participate in MBAs Across America, an organization that has sent groups of MBAs on a five-week road trip to work with visionary social entrepreneurs. Each team embarks on a five-week road trip across the country, spending each week with a different social entrepreneur along the way.

Now, MBAx has gone open source, Michigan Ross students started Ross Open Road, which is an initiative where  teams embark on their own journeys of impact in an effort to scale support for visionary entrepreneurs in communities far and wide.

For further information, visit the official student-run Ross Open Road website.

 “It’s hard to have imagined the many incredible people — the many real-life superheroes — who we would meet along the way.”  — Kashay Sanders, 2018 Ross Open Roader
